WFAE Talks Petraeus And For-Profit Charter Schools
It was a surreal news week for WFAE's Tom Bullock. At NPR, Tom was Baghdad bureau chief and covered General David Patraeus during his rise to prominence. On Thursday, Tom covered Patraeus in a federal courtroom in Charlotte as he admitted to violating the Espionage Act. He talks about it in this episode of WFAE Talks. Plus, education reporter Lisa Worf discusses the Charter School Advisory Board's decision to recommend approval of several for-profit charter schools. Last year, some lawmakers made it clear they were unhappy the board only approved one for-profit charter school.
