PA’s House democrats takes aim at ‘conflict of interest’ in charter school leases, which is a phony issue
USCharterSchools: Folks, whenever a Democrat files legislation or attempts to “reform” existing law by citing concerns about “conflicts of interest”, accountability, efficiencies or other lofty justifications, it’s typically just another veiled attack on charter schools and charter autonomy.
PA – House Democrats on Wednesday unveiled a package of eight charter school reform bills they said are designed to treat all Pennsylvania public schools – both traditional and charter – and their students equally under law.
One introduced by State Rep. James Roebuck, (D- Phila.), House Bill 1199, takes aim at conflicts of interest in tax-funded payments for charter school leases.
