Letter to Rick Turner

-A A +A

I was saddened and a bit taken back when I read your statement from the last school board meeting: “This legislative body is telling us where their care is, and that’s into charter schools, and not public schools.”  This statement clearly showed a lack of understanding regarding charter schools as well as a lack of compassion for the parents who choose these alternatives for their children.  So please allow me to clear up a few things.

First, did you really think that charter schools are not public schools?  They are totally public schools, public supported and the Levy County School Board is the official sponsor.  That is why the district receives a percentage of funding based on every student who attends a charter school, including those who come from neighboring counties and from private and home school situations. You didn’t sound like you were taking much of a sponsorship role. Remember charter schools are taking just as hefty cuts in education as public schools.
