Should the state give more latitude to high F&R and minority charter schools before not renewing their charters?
As noted in today's article, representatives from PreEminent Charter and Torchlight Academy, both in Raleigh, are making that case in an attempt to keep their charters. State officials are citing low test scores and other issues for not recommending that their charters be renewed when they expire in June.
"You have to look at more than statistics," said Don McQueen, executive director of Torchlight. "You have to look at the character of the school."
