Raise Your Hand Testifies on Charter Funding and SB 1882 School/Community Partnerships

August 08, 2018  

The Texas House of Representatives’ Committee on Public Education met today to discuss, among other things, charter school funding. David Anderson, general counsel and policy analyst for Raise Your Hand Texas, was invited to share testimony on the issue. Below you can find key summary points and his complete testimony.

Key Points

  • The largest nine school districts in the state would receive $1,300 – $1,900 more per student if they were funded at charter levels.
  • SB 1882 provides exciting opportunities for school districts to partner with open enrollment charters or other entities.
  • High performing school districts and districts partnering with state institutions of higher education should not be subjected to an extensive application process to form an 1882 partnership.
