Sent in Friday night, this parent comment (here) suggests that there is among parents some frustration and turnover with the Aspira charter schools, especially the original school, Ramirez. I don't know the facts and
I'm not interested in general charter-bashing here -- don't bother -- but does anyone know (1) why the principal was let go, (2) where Mirta Ramirez is going to be starting this fall, (3) whether there is any organized system for prioritizing charter school facilities decisions (not that there's one for regular CPS schools), (4) whether there are any other charter schools in Chicago that have started PTOs, and (5) if and how parents are included in charter board meetings at other charter schools? Maybe we can get ourselves informed and help this parent out. For some background, check here. Photo credit: Substance News.
