26 charter schools get final approval in North Carolina

The North Carolina State Board of Education has given final approval for 26 new charter schools to open this fall. The Raleigh News & Observer says the approved schools include 11 in the Charlotte area and six in the Raleigh-Durham area. The number of charter schools in North Carolina has expanded sharply since legislators eliminated the 100-school cap in 2011. There now are 127 schools, and the latest approvals will raise the number to 153 schools.
