You may have heard (if you live in Texas and maybe if not) that there are people wanting to turn Dallas ISD into a home-rule charter. This would basically turn it into a charter school district. It concerns me a bit considering I just left a charter school. Nothing at all against charter school, I was just hoping to move into a traditional public school district for a while.
As of last week, they have gotten the signatures on the petition which has required DISD to appoint a committee to draft a plan for the charter. It will be voted on in November if they finish the plan in time. I know some of the changes that could potentially happen – but haven’t decided if I think it is the best plan for Dallas…
They didn’t ask me though, go figure!
How would you feel about your school district becoming a charter school district?
