Charter school bill changes pass NC House

Published 12:00 am Tuesday, July 9, 2013

RALEIGH (AP) — A bill creating more rules to govern a growing number of public charter schools in North Carolina but omitting the creation of a powerful panel to oversee them has passed the House.
The House voted 96-14 Monday on the additional changes for charter schools. Now the bill returns to the Senate.
Senators passed a version earlier that included a new board separate from the State Board of Elections to approve and close schools and set other policies.
The House and State Board of Education Chairman Bill Cobey opposed that idea and developed a new version that would essentially retain an advisory commission already in place to make recommendations to the State Board of Education.
The Senate bill’s chief sponsor has said he expects fellow Republicans to support the new version.
