Texas AFT joins coalition of public-school supporters to oppose new charter-school rules

Last week’s Hotline outlined our participation in a coalition of organizations objecting to new Texas Education Agency rules proposed that would make it easier for charter school “partnerships” to take over public school operations. (The Texas Tribune also covered the issue.) The coalition testified at another Texas Education Agency hearing on Monday and outlined its objections to a new charter performance framework and revised charter expansion rules that would fast-track rapid, unfettered charter expansion.
