Superintendent Nerad's response to question about charter schools

At last night's panel discussion, Getting to A+: Wisconsin's education challenges, Dan Nerad, Superintendent of Madison Metropolitan School District made the following points in response to a question from the audience about charter schools:

1. Charters should not take away resources from our public schools
2. The same standards should apply to charters as to other schools
3. He is in support of instrumentality charter schools

With regard to SB 22, Nerad said that he has concerns about the establishment of an appointed Charter Authorizing Board as opposed to trusting locally elected school boards to make these decisions.  He hopes to testify at today's hearing on SB 22.
