House Approves Charter School Bill

The Rhode Island House has passed a bill that will make it much more difficult for charter schools to open and expand in the state.  The measure requires that any charter school expansion show that it will not have a negative impact on finances or academics of the local district.  The measure also requires that any charter school be approved by the local town or city council.  The bill would not affect any applications that have already been approved, and now heads to the Senate.
