Senate Bill 8: Another Approach To Charters

Senate Bill 8 is the second charter bill proposal in the 2015 session. It proposes a pilot charter program in Kentucky's two largest districts, with enrollment limited to students from low-income families who attend schools with unusually weak performance.

We've taken the eight questions from Exploring Charter Schools in Kentucky: An Informational Guide, and developed "Answers for Senate Bill 8" to summarize key features of the new bill.  The new summary available in a public DropBox folder, along with the earlier summary of House Bill 174.

Check it out, and do share questions if you have them!
