Senate budget could kick New Hampshire kids out of school

Charter School supporters fear consequences of Enrollment Cap
By Grant Bosse

An amendment capping charter school enrollment across New Hampshire could force hundreds of Granite State students out of their current schools. The Senate Finance Committee adopted a cap of 850 charter school students statewide next year, far fewer than are currently enrolled. The cap increases to 950 for the 2010-2011 academic year. If the cap is written into the state budget, New Hampshire’s eleven charter schools would not be able to accept new students next year, and might have to hold a “reverse lottery” to kick current students out of the classroom. And two charter school administrators worry that the cap might force them out of business entirely.
