On Friday, the U.S. House passed H.R. 10, the Success and Opportunity through Quality Charter Schools Act. The bill provides some funding for charters, increases the number of charter schools, and encourages the sharing of best practices with traditional public schools. The bill enjoyed bipartisan support, passing 360-45.
Seventh District Representative Rob Woodall took to the House Floor to talk about the benefits of charter schools, and to brag on two charters in his district.
It’s good to see Congress getting behind the charter school movement. It’s too bad that some in the Georgia legislature don’t think the same way.
