Michigan Board of Education favors greater charter schools transparency

LANSING (WKZO) -- The State Board of Education wants the legislature to overhaul Michigan's charter school laws. The board voted Tuesday in favor of asking lawmakers to require greater transparency and accountability on the part of schools and their supervisors.

One of the recommended changes would require private management companies that run charter schools to post the same information online that public schools have to post. The board also wants to bar management companies from being a charter school's landlord.
