Recently passed legislation strengthens regulation of charter schools, requiring in-depth financial and academic reporting from schools and management organizations, stopping charter schools from switching sponsors to avoid getting shut down, and prohibiting poorly rated sponsors from opening new schools, among other provisions. Do you believe this legislation is sufficient? Why or why not?

House Bill 2 is an important step to improve accountability standards, and I advocate additional reporting requirements, e.g. for private companies providing services to charter schools, in line with stringent standards that public schools must follow. Ultimately, I believe in strengthening public schools and providing real education choices; among my top policy priorities is innovative education.
