Charter Schools

LA Parents Furious Over Proposed Charter School Restriction

Charters are cheaper and more effective, so of course officials don't like them


Dozens of parents with children in charter schools on Tuesday protested a proposal before the Los Angeles Unified School Board to declare a moratorium on new charter schools and tighten oversight of existing ones.

While dozens of parents filled the board room, about 50 others chanted "my child, my choice" and waved placards on the sidewalk outside the meeting.
