San Diego public schools lose funding to charter schools
A new report says charter schools divert nearly sixty-six million dollars in annual funding from San Diego public schools. The study, released by In the Public Interest, finds that San Diego Unified loses nearly 5 thousand dollars a year per charter school student.
On Tuesday, San Diego Unified School District Superintendent Cindy Marten will join students and teachers to discuss a first-of-its-kind analysis that finds charter schools remove 65.9 million dollars in funding annually from students in San Diego’s neighborhood public schools.
In the Public Interest Senior Policy Advisor Clare Crawford and San Diego Unified School District Trustee Richard Barrera were in studio to talk more about the report.
