    Governor Barnes gutted the charter school law by taking away the title 20 exemption–by taking away their flexibility. Thus, it was more costly for start up charters to apply because they have to give a line by line list of what laws and regulations they wanted to be exempt from.

    Also, Gov. Barnes increased mandates on local school systems–expenditure controls, etc.

    Thus, the charter systems opportunity given to school systems is a “180” from what Governor Barnes proposesd.
