Boston officials and charter schools ready to call a truce

April 28, 2011
Agreement would lead to more cooperation between the school system and the charter operators in the city

From The Boston Globe:Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino and school officials are on the verge of reaching a truce with the city’s independently run charter schools. The three-page document attempts to resolve some of the thorniest issues, from money to the kinds of students charter schools serve, issues that have long strained relations between City Hall and the 14 charter schools in the city. Of particular significance, charter schools would agree to target student recruitment in nearby neighborhoods so fewer students require busing. In return, Boston would consider leasing empty district school buildings to those charter schools that abide by the compact
