Response to LRSD Civic Advisory Committee’s Opposition to Charter Expansion, TFA

The attached is a fact-based, sourced response to the Little Rock School District Civic Advisory Committee’s February 11, 2016 Memorandum to the State Board of Education opposing “Expansion of Charter Schools within LRSD Boundary.”

The Little Rock School District, eStem Public Charter Schools, LISA Academy, the other six open-enrollment public charter schools in the LRSD footprint, and inter-district school choice offer a portfolio of excellent education options for LRSD resident students and families. Prohibiting one or more from expanding to meet demonstrated demand and obstructing the ability to employ qualified teachers of choice denies excellence, adequacy and equity to all.
