State of the State RI

Guest: Tim Groves, Executive Director, RI League of Charter Schools.
Host: Donna Perry
Given the number of bills introduced during the 2015 legislative session to change the approval process for and to otherwise limit the growth of charter schools, a look at the status of charter school is timely. Tim Groves, the new Executive Director of RI League of Charter Schools, discusses his concerns about how such legislation would disaffect charter schools. However, he recognizes that the school funding formula needs open discussion. RI charter schools have received national recognition and acclaim for their innovative models and student performance. Yet in RI, they seem to be regarded as outliers.
