Malloy administration fails to properly regulate Connecticut charter schools.
Charter schools are privately owned, but publicly funded, organizations that grab more than $110 million a year from Connecticut taxpayers.
But thanks to Governor Dannel Malloy’s pro-charter school policies, charter schools are allowed to violate Connecticut laws and walk away from their obligations to Connecticut’s student, parents and teachers.
For example, charter schools fail to hire certified teachers and employees. See Wait What? post entitled Connecticut charter schools violate state law with use of uncertified teachers and administrators
Charter schools refuse to educate their fair share of students who require special education services or those who need help learning the English language
Charter schools maintain inappropriate and unfair discipline policies that lead to unacceptably high numbers of students being suspended from school.
Instead of stepping up and ensuring these corporations are following the laws, regulations and policies, Governor Dannel Malloy’s administration simply looks the other way.
Earlier this year, Governor Malloy’s Commissioner of Education made her position extremely clear.
