Governor Robert Bentley has signed the charter school legislation into law. Frankly, I have mixed emotions about any real need for charter schools. I believe that passage of this law will wind up being a real blow to public education in Alabama. I am greatly concerned that charter schools will be run without adequate regulation and by persons and companies that are more motivated by making money than they are about being focused on the education of our children.
Maybe I’m missing something, but taking badly needed funds from public schools to fund charter schools is the last thing we need to do. Our public schools are already severely under-funded and taking funds away for use by charter schools makes little sense. Time will tell if I am wrong about charter schools. While I hope that I am, based on how they will be set up and what they will leave behind, I seriously doubt it.
