Congrats to the Trustees of the SCCBOE for having the foresight, courage and conviction to grant the communities of Santa Clara County an opportunity to get out from under the teacher;s unions' waste and political machine. Charter schools can do so much more, for less, than any District. The Districts deny charters, which is no surprise, because they are competition which show that it can be done. I commend the SCCBOE for continuing to grant and renew charters!
