Gov. Gavin Newsom demanded a bill requiring more transparency from charter schools, and he got one in record time, then signed it this week, flanked by negotiators for school districts, teachers unions and even charter schools. But he made no commitments for further restrictions, saying he’d wait for a panel of experts’ advice in the spring.
This week, Louis and John play back his remarks and discuss what’s ahead for charter schools. And we share snippets of our webinar on public employee pensions, highlighting key disagreements on how to view the escalating pension expenses facing school districts. We also discuss the implications of the California Supreme Court decision on pensions.
