Memo in opposition to raising the cap on charters or allowing “zombie” charters

UPDATE: 4/7/21 Thankfully, the completed state budget does NOT have any increase in the number of charter schools allowed under the cap; nor does it revive the “zombie” charters!

I just heard from a connected source that raising the charter cap and/or reviving the “zombie” charters is still on the table in Albany, so CSM and NYC Kids PAC sent in the following memo in opposition.

Hope it’s not true but there have been too many unpleasant surprises in state budgets over the years, and the charter lobby has a lot of money to throw around.   I saw two TV ads  for Success charters in the space of five minutes last night on NY1.
