Board of Education bristles at losing power over charter schools
from Austin American-Statesman
The State Board of Education lambasted a high-profile proposal approved by the Texas Senate that would strip the education panel of its power to authorize new charter schools. The legislation, which still needs approval from the House, moves that power to the state commissioner of education. Approved overwhelmingly last week, Senate Bill 2 expands the maximum number of charter schools authorized to operate statewide, raising the current cap of 215 to 305 by September 2019.
