State lawmakers set to discuss charter schools


MADISON (WKOW) -- A bipartisan group of state lawmakers will address charter school supporters at a two-day conference this Monday and Tuesday in Madison.

The Democratic chairs of the state Senate and Assembly Education committees and the ranking Republican members on each panel are all scheduled to speak at the meeting.

John Gee, executive director of the Wisconsin Charter Schools Association, says this year's conference will assist anyone looking to start a charter school, improve an existing one or apply good qualities of existing charter schools to traditional public schools.

As of September 2009, Wisconsin has over 200 charter schools serving more than 30,000 students.
