Another Modest Proposal

Just have Acheivement First work with a Providence based non-profit to create a "regular" charter school here. It is 100% certain to pass with no problems.

They'd just have to pay teachers the prevailing wage, put them in the state retirement system, and otherwise treat them as "public school employees, having the same rights under Rhode Island and federal law as employees and prospective employees at a non-chartered public school."

If they'd been willing to do that, AF would be looking at carpet samples and measuring for drapes by now, but apparently having no school is better for kids than paying teachers.
