CMS And Charter Schools

If you’ve been following public education in recent years, it almost seems as if the system is under siege.  That’s certainly the case locally.  CMS recently told county commissioners that they would likely lose $80 million to charter schools this year – an amount that cannot be made up with cuts in overhead.  And teacher pay continues to be a big issue.  We get an update on all this from Superintendent Heath Morrison and state school board member John Tate.
