Senate votes to impose new ESL, disabled rules on charter schools
from Chicago Sun-Times
The Senate voted to have charter schools accommodate disabled children and those who speak English as a second language, a plan that several lawmakers worried would choke charter schools' "flexibility." The measure, sponsored by Sen. Kimberly Lightford, D-Maywood, passed in the Senate 34-15 and goes to Gov. Pat Quinn.
