"I support charter schools", Trujillo said.

House Bill 281, which would set limits on how much the state's attorney general could pay the outside lawyers he hires to handle complex litigation, awaits a hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

House Bill 222, which would prohibit shock probation for drunken drivers convicted of manslaughter or vehicular homicide, awaits a final vote on the Senate floor. House leaders are also pushing a Monday deadline to pass bills from one legislative chamber to the other.

"Princeton Public Schools receives less money from the state than we send to the very segregated Princeton Charter School", reads the Facebook post.

"I don't know about anyone else but they get good report cards every marking period and for them to close the school I don't what's going over there", grandfather Thomas Sturdivant said.

"For almost two decades, Red Bank Charter School has provided a choice in public education for Red Bank families, and we are thrilled that the Department of Education has given us the opportunity to continue serving our community". Supporters said the bill removes duplicative and burdensome requirements, but replaces most of the stricken language in other sections of code.

But the discussion came down to a simple question: Are charter schools overrated?

The alliance found D.C. had 115 charter schools and Maryland had 50. These schools will offer more choices for parents, thereby fostering education.

House Bill 520, sponsored by Rep. John "Bam" Carney, would authorize charter schools throughout the state. This was a point of contention Friday.

"I don't really want to tell you what I'm feeling right now", said McIlroy with only half a smile. I'm glad that I only had three holes left after that, I was sort of lagging on the way in.

"I still feel handcuffed", Belnap said.

McClure appeared taken aback, said she has never been in this position before and said she felt "terribly disheartened" to hear anyone felt misled. This year Camden Community was one of 21 charter schools statewide up for review and the only one rejected.

McClure also said she wracked her brain and could not remember making any misleading statements, and said she would be really disappointed in herself if she had misled other lobbyists. He also leveled criticism against the Democratic members and teachers unions who opposed the measure. Calling the bill exceedingly complicated, Stark said nobody has been given the time to properly vet the bill and determine its effects.

The House Education Committee will have a special meeting at 9 a.m. Friday to vote on the bill.

Six of the bills have a connection to K-12. It was amended to prohibit completely "virtual" charter schools and allow the mayors of Louisville and Lexington to approve charter school applications.

While the charter's renewal application described its mission as creating an educational environment "characterized by high expectations" for students, "there were few observed instances of high expectations in classrooms", the letter said. That makes Minnesota unusual, said Joe Nathan, director of the Center for School Change. State law now limits commission members to two four-year terms. The governor said any argument that charter schools are a threat to public education is a "scare tactic" and added that he feels the only threat charter schools pose is to current "failures" in Kentucky's education system.

A bill meant to change the governance model, sponsored by Sen. "It's not about the students to anyone of those that are opposing this bill". It awaits a hearing in the House State Government Committee.

Kentucky Education and Workforce Secretary Hal Heiner also pointed to the high number of Kentucky students now performing behind grade level, adding that charter schools can help bring them up to speed through specialization and other flexibility options that public charter schools could provide.
