The Latest: Brown rejects ban on for-profit charter schools






SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The Latest on California legislation acted upon by Gov. Jerry Brown ahead of a Sunday deadline (All times local):
5:31 p.m.
Gov. Jerry Brown is rejecting legislation that would have blocked for-profit companies from operating charter schools in California.
Brown says in a veto message Saturday that he doesn't believe lawmakers have made the case to stop for-profit companies from operating charter schools in the state.
He declined to sign AB 787 by Democratic Assemblyman Roger Hern├índez of West Covina. He says the bill also contains ambiguous language that could restrict nonprofit charter schools from even using for-profit vendors.
Brown helped launch two Oakland charter schools, but teachers unions and many of his fellow Democrats oppose them because most employees are not unionized.
