Letter: RI’s families deserve a choice in schools
May 4, 12:00 AM
Charter schools are not hybrid, they are public schools. The statement that access to charter schools is “random” is incorrect. The admission process is not “random.” It is mandated by the state of Rhode Island’s Department of Education as a lottery to provide fair and equal access to any student wishing to go. This lottery is held March 1, every year. If the number of applicants exceeds the available spaces, a wait list is created.
