Michigan increases number of Cyber Charter Schools despite local objections
Sunday, 3 June 2012
Oakland County students who are already enrolled in Michigan’s only two cyber charter schools will have more options now that Gov. Rick Snyder has signed into law legislation that allows the number of schools offering all classes on computers to increase to 15 by 2015. Many Oakland County superintendents and other educators are opposed to the move to allow more cyber schools before there is more evaluation on the two existing schools that can enroll students anywhere in the state.
They also objected because the schools will take dollars from their home school district because when students attend the free charter schools the state funnels money that would have gone to the child’s home district to the charter school. Read the full article from District Administration News.
