Arizona charter schools oppose more state regulation

Arizona charter schools oppose more state regulationArizona charter school officials say they don’t want the state to impose more regulations on how the mostly privately operated schools buy goods and services with taxpayer dollars, and the state board says that’s OK with it.

The State Board for Charter Schools held a study session with charter school officials Wednesday in response to a newspaper’s investigation that found that officials of some charters did business with their own schools.

School officials told the board that more regulations would impose burdens on the schools and that policies in place are reasonable.

The Arizona Republic reports that no board members suggested policy changes and that Executive Director DeAnna Rowe said the board will continue to operate as it has.
