Pigs Fly, Rick Scott get a little something right about charter schools

We were all, and rightfully so, outraged at the prospect of the state giving for profit charter schools one hundred million dollars for maintenance and construction. Here is the thing, Scott has announced there will be strings attached and real ones too.

From Redefined Ed: To qualify for state capital funding, new charter schools would have to be accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, obtain a surety bond to ensure they’re on firm financial ground, and “be established primarily to serve students in the attendance zone of a school” that is struggling academically, to the point that it requires state intervention.

The schools would also have to receive a school grade from the state.

The requirements are contained in the proviso language, or fine print, of Scott’s budget proposal, which can be found here. They would only apply to charter schools authorized after July 2015 that seek state capital funding.

Okay sure it is only for new charter schools but it is something right? Though why do I feel that since there isn't money to be made in the small, rural counties nobody is going to take him up on it.
