Enjoy This One Folks


PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- The nine-member Board of Regents for Elementary and Secondary Education has rejected the application of charter management operator Achievement First, which wanted to open a network of public charter schools serving students in Cranston and Providence.

The vote Thursday afternoon was 7-1, with Regent Betsy Shimberg casting the dissenting vote. The ninth regent, Mat Santos, was absent on National Guard Duty.
