Michigan Board of Education reviewing charter schools rules

LANSING (WKZO) -- The state Board of Education is reviewing a proposal to change the laws that apply to charter schools.

The changes would include a requirement that companies running charter schools make salaries, benefits and contracts public. It would also require an open bidding process for contracting services as well as bar a company from being both management and landlord to a charter school.

The discussion follows state Superintendent Mike Flanagan's announcement Monday that eleven charter school authorizers are at risk of being cut off from adding any more schools because the ones they currently sponsor are underperforming.
