Extractions: Government Finance Review , August 1996 Charter schools are illuminating education finance issues that could have implications for high-performance schools, decentralized schools, and education funding in general. As of May 1996, 22 states had some type of charter school law on the books, and more states are likely to follow. This response is significant given that the first charter school law was enacted just five years ago. Charter schools are independent public schools formed by teachers, parents, and/or other community members. Such schools are freed from most state and local laws and/or policies in exchange for a written contract (or charter) which specifies certain learner results that must be met. Each charter school law is different (as are the resulting schools), and much has been written about the characteristics of stronger and weaker laws. Charter schools formed under weaker laws tend to remain a legal part of their school district and pose few serious school finance challenges. Those schools formed under stronger laws, however, are often legally and fiscally autonomous entities. This situation is raising new issues about how charter and other public schools are funded. Charter schools with fiscal autonomy could serve as laboratories to study whether funding schools directly - versus the current system of funding districts - results in resources being more closely connected to student performance.
Louisiana Civil Liberties Union of louisiana opposes all of 3) disabled students Private schools may discriminate lack of English proficiency or other special needs. http://www.laaclu.org/News/2003/April 11 Vouchers.htm
Extractions: Louisianas Voucher Schemes Unfair, Unaccountable and Un-American BATON ROUGE, April 11, 2003 The American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana opposes all of the voucher program proposals that have been introduced in the 2003 General Legislative Session. We oppose voucher schemes both because of our commitment to fairness in defending the constitutional principles afforded all persons in our state and our longstanding allegiance to the principles of a strong, secular public education. A quality public education program throughout this state and the nation provides the foundation on which we rest the security of our democracy. Vouchers chip away at that foundation and indicate the vulnerability of our government to the lobbying efforts of the private school system. Of course, first and foremost we must address the most pressing concern: the high number of defective schools and failing students, especially in Orleans parish. The ACLU recognizes the crisis and need for remedies that BESE and local school boards are proposing without resorting to vouchers. A lack of oversight and accountability at all levels within the system, inadequate funding, uncertified teachers, a high poverty rate contributing to low parental involvement, dilapidated buildings and a shortage of basic supplies and equipment have all contributed to the issue at hand. Vouchers, however, do not and will not solve those problems.

Extractions: Students' Work Including special-needs students in regular classrooms seems to improve student academic performance, data show by Peter Farley AMHERST The inclusive-style classroom may be denying elementary school special needs students the attention they require and the education they deserve, according to some local teachers. But an analysis of available data gives a different picture. Now only one question remains: which method of grouping is most effective in helping students, with and without disabilities, to achieve their expected goals? IDEA requires that disabled students be placed in a setting that constitutes the "least restrictive environment." In other words, the government calls for disabled students to be educated with those who are nondisabled, to the maximum extent appropriate. However, teachers such as Mary Donovan, a fourth-grade instructor at Crocker Farm Elementary School in Amherst, say the law is often misinterpreted. The "least restrictive environment" isnt always the regular classroom for special needs students, Donovan said.
