Don’t Let a Rat Gut Charter School Accountability
Attempts to strip the FOI and charter approval process provisions of the bill by Malloy Administration officials were discovered on the last day of the session during budget “implementer” discussions. That’s when pet projects and sneaky legislative maneuvers -- or “rats” -- are traditionally passed.
But lawmakers will soon go into “special session” to pass implementer bills. Thank them now for voting to establish stronger transparency and accountability frameworks for charter schools and urge they VOTE NO on any implementer bill that would weaken S.B. 1096.
