Charter Schools in West Virginia

While the state Senate appears poised to pass a bill allowing charter schools in West Virginia, House members appear skeptical on the topic, The Associated Press reports.

A key Senate supporter says "it simply frees up teachers and school districts in creating new approaches to education," the article said, while a leading delegate opines that "the Legislature should wait until a special committee studying the idea reaches its findings."

Others with coverage of the Senate bill's progress include the Charleston Daily Mail, MetroNews, The Charleston Gazette and The Register-Herald of Beckley.
