Please contact your State Representative and ask them to vote NO on HB 5918.
HB 5918 would allow charter schools to be renewed up to 10 years instead of the current 5 years. While public schools are being held more accountable, 10 years is entirely too long for a charter school to operate unfettered. This bill is a priority of Stand for Children and also a part of Governor Rauner’s vision for public education reform in the state of Illinois.
