Connecticut Looking to Expand Charter Schools
Speaking of Connecticut, it’s looking for high-quality charters:
My name is Debra Kurshan and I am the Chief Turnaround Officer at the Connecticut State Department of Education. We are all dealing with tragedy that struck here last week and are so appreciative of the outpouring of support from across the country. We are working to continue our work and keep our prayers and thoughts with the families and community of Newtown.
As you know Connecticut passed a set of legislation reform items last summer and the Governor has laid out 6 key principles one which is to expand high quality school models. I am writing to ask if you would post some information about the letter of interest we are requesting from charter school operators on your listserv. This is part of our effort to increase the availability of high quality school models. The letter can be found here.
Please let me know if you have questions.
