They have had a significant amount of time to find new sponsors. The authorizers are saying no to some schools for a reason!

It is unconstitutional to have laws that affect only one group. I do not know how our legislators can craft the law in a way to give one extra year to every charter school except one. Where are the civil rights defenders???????????

Seriously another year? Do you think that you or I would get a one year notice from our employers to our act together or else???

MuffyAl, there's a lot at stake here. There are a lot of kids & parents who will have to scramble to find new schools, possibly affecting the students' education, etc. It can very loosely be compared to how difficult it is to take a child away from unfit parents - kind of a last resort.

view123, the law forbids ALL charter schools from having an out-of-state authorizer. But regarding the constitution, TIZA is a religious school being funded with public money. Now that is clearly a violation of the constitution.
