This will devastate schools that are serving our most vulnerable populations. As a former public school teacher and CTA member, I object to the attacks on public CHARTER schools that have been locally approved and serve local students. Charter schools are PUBLIC schools. To remove funding or restrict non-classroom based schools is to remove opportunities for students who are not served by traditional schools. Please reconsider.

This bill not only restricts parents choice but it will cause loss of jobs a business for thousands of Californians. This bill is a power grab by unions.

I disagree with this bill as it will harm unnecessarily charter schools and their mission. I am a charter school teacher in a low-income zip code of northern Los Angeles County, California (93535). Our students come from various backgrounds and deal with lots of challenges in their daily lives. In my professional experience as a charter school teacher with a Special Education credential, I have worked with foster youth and their supporting agencies, single parents, pregnant mothers who dropped out of high school, students and families experiencing homelessness, children with autism who desire to work independently, and LGBTQ youth who have had to leave traditional schools due to bullying and anxiety in that setting. We have a diverse and caring staff who go out of their way to work with students -- taking phone calls from parents and students after work hours and on weekends and holidays. At my specific site, approximately 20 percent of students have an IEP and are served by a credentialed Special Education teacher. Additionally, my charter school organization partners with our local public school districts to offer summer curriculum and credit retrieval initiatives. In so many words, we are part of a patchwork of the necessary social service framework that acts as an extended safety net for the state's most vulnerable youth. I would urge California legislators to keep these things in mind when proposing sweeping legislation.
