Time Running Out on Charter Schools
December 7th, 2006

This month’s lame duck session in Albany is the last chance for state officials to allow more charter schools this year, writes the New York Sun. The newspaper urges officials to make sure this happens:

“Time is of the essence, because if new schools are to open to students in September, teachers must be hired, students must be recruited, and sites must be procured now. ”

Mayor Michael Bloomberg is also feeling the pressure. Aides say that lifting the cap on charter schools is his top legislative priority when the legislature starts its session on December 13.
