AZ Charter Schools Resist Increased Regulations

Flexibility is the whole point, and families can vote with their feet

Arizona charter school officials say they don't want the state to impose more regulations on how the mostly privately operated schools buy goods and services with taxpayer dollars, and the state board says that's OK with it.

The State Board for Charter Schools held a study session with charter school officials Wednesday in response to a newspaper's investigation that found that officials of some charters did business with their own schools.

School officials told the board that more regulations would impose burdens on the schools and that policies in place are reasonable.
