Chester Upland School District has until March 5 to reject two new charter school applications.
Why would a charter school try to come into Chester when Mr. Receiver has made it plain that he’s looking to bring students back to the school district from existing charter schools?
One proposed charter school will focus on getting students to become critical thinkers and the other will create hospitality experts.
I agree with Rachel Foster who needs to see how that critical thinking curriculum will fit into an elementary school curriculum. In my opinion, if someone came in with a behavior and discipline curriculum, I’d let them in right away.
And, a school focusing on hospitality is cool, but I’d need to see other speciality skill schools coming into the district for students not interested in hotel, resort, food and beverage careers.
But, it’s all for naught anyway because Mr. Receiver’s entire program would go out the window if he allowed more charters in town, wouldn’t it?
