Brown: Keep charter facilities allowance at $3000 per student


Kwame R. Brown (Katherine Frey/The Washington Post)

The broader issue of charter school funding has been the focus of a mayoral commission. It recommended this week that the allowance remain at $3,000, but added that further study is warranted. Brown said he realized that the discussion was ongoing, but that in the near-term charters need more stability and certainty in their finances. He urged that the full $3,000 be built back into the local budget.

“This is the right thing to do for our students,” Brown said.
