Charter association responds to NYC council member’s claims
 
Albany, NY – New York State’s charter school association today responded to a New York City council member's claims about charter schools.
 
Northeast Charter Schools Network CEO Kyle Rosenkrans said, “It’s obvious that this council member needs a refresher in how charter schools operate. For one, their budgets are public information. They are already required to post their audits online. Their policies and procedures are public, and authorizer-approved. And their board members are required to comply with the general municipal law covering conflict of interest. Additionally, their board meetings and meeting minutes are public and publicly available.
 
"We suggest this council member take a few minutes out of his busy day to read the law. Charter schools are subject to more financial accountability measures than all other public schools. Somehow he is the education committee chair but he is unable to grasp these facts.”
