Changing the game in Parma

In-demand charter school

Arts & College Preparatory Academy in Columbus (ACPA) has done fantastic work to create an environment where students can thrive and grow through arts and academics. And the school itself is growing as well. Kudos to ACPA staff, students, and families!

The Enquirer recently posed this question to all the candidates: “What is the ideal relationship between CPS and charter schools?” The answers are varied and interesting.
The view from Michigan
Nina Rees, CEO of NAPCS, and Dan Quisenberry, president of the Michigan Association of Public School Academies, recently published a jointfor vetoing part of a per-pupil funding increase passed by the state legislature. The part she vetoed? Money for charter school students.
