Charters face cuts after dispute with school district

March 31, 2013

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution


Atlanta’s charter schools are increasing class sizes, reducing staff and trimming budgets because nearly $3 million is being withheld from them in a legal dispute with the city school district. One judge has ruled the charters should have the money.

Rocco Testani, an attorney for the charter schools, said charter schools operate on tight budgets and they’re less able to pay a cost they have nothing to do with. “It’s a much more disruptive issue for the charter schools than it is for the system as a whole,” he said.
