More bad Florida charter school news

Another day and more bad news about Florida’s charter schools:

Charter school abruptly close:
Another charter school in Broward has closed, this time for failing to pay its rent.
On Tuesday, School Board members accepted the voluntary termination of College Bound Academy of Excellence, a school for sixth to 12thgrades that opened this year in Margate.

The charter school closed its doors to 60 students early last week but failed to notify district officials beforehand.

Teachers at closed charter school sue for unpaid wages.
Almost a dozen employees of a now-shuttered charter School in Fort Lauderdale are suing the school's founder for unpaid wages.

Mitchell did not respond to a message left on his cell phone on Monday.

"We're aggravated, we're hurt, we're disappointed, we don't know where to turn and we don't know what to do," said former school secretary Sharon Cooper, who says she is owed a whole month of pay, or $2,100. "I'm trying desperately to find a job."

Others allege they weren't given any supplies or reimbursed for purchasing classroom materials.
