Georgia Supreme Court hears charter school funding dispute

June 17, 2013

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution


The growth of charter schools in Atlanta could stall unless they’re forced to help pay off the city school system’s old pension debt. Atlanta Public Schools is appealing a judge’s ruling that it can’t make charters share its pension cost.

An attorney for the Atlanta charter schools, Rocco Testani, said he doubts that the money issue would prevent the school board from approving charter schools.

“Quality charter programs that are good for children get approved by boards, and that’s the basis I would hope the board would use to make its decisions,” Testani said after making his argument.
