“If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it” is the saying. Why, then, does Gov. Mike Dunleavy, who proudly proclaims that our state’s charter schools rank among the highest in the nation, want to change how they function? This is a disturbing disconnect in planning for our state’s education future. Rather, we should fund our schools so that they are all excellent. Raise the Base Student Allocation, but maintain local control.
