Charter Board cites poor academic performance and management deficiencies

From The Washington Post: Two long-time charter schools in Washington, D.C., are candidates for closure because of poor academic records and management issues. The D.C. Public Charter School Board voted to place Community Academy PCS, opened in 1997, and Integrated Design Electronics Academy (IDEA), opened in 1998, on the path to revocation of their operating charters. A final decision will come early next year after the schools have a chance to address the specific deficiencies at public hearings.
