The General Assembly has recently been battling over finalizing the state budget. Meanwhile, another battle has been taking place as lawmakers debate over lowering standards for North Carolina’s growing number of charter schools.
Legislators have enacted some significant changes in recent years to make it easier for new charter schools to be created. In the past week, members of the House and Senate approved legislation that permits charter schools to not divulge certain employee salaries.
Specifically, if the charter school is managed by a private, for-profit management company, then the salaries of the employees of the private organization would not be required to be made public.
