NYT on SB2: Sen. Dan Patrick’s education reform bill

Senate Bill 2, the centerpiece of Mr. Patrick’s plans for the session, is the most ambitious attempt to expand the state’s charter school system since it was established in 1995. . . .

Mr. Patrick’s proposal would eliminate a law that caps the number of contracts the state can grant charter operators at 215 and would create an oversight board to handle the approval process. It would also provide an allotment for state-facilities financing and require that school districts offer to sell or lease underutilized classrooms and other facilities to charters.

“A Tough Road for Charter Proposal”, Morgan Smith, New York Times, March 16, 2013.
