Charter Caps, Laser Pointers and SuperPACs

Mike Antonucci:

Here's a partial list of proposed business items currently under review by the board of directors and various committees of the California Teachers Association:

* That CTA amend the first paragraph on charter schools to read "CTA believes the role of charter schools is to provide students, parents and CTA members with educational opportunities that supplement not supplant public school offerings."

Rationale: Current language does not deal with the reality that charter school growth is often negatively impacting school districts' programs and forcing our members to become subject to reduction in force.

* That CTA amend by addition to policy on charter schools the following first paragraph: "CTA believes in a cap on charter schools that does not exceed 10% of school districts' enrollment."
