Newsmakers Breakfast Sept. 26 on public, charter schools

The thinking behind the charter school debate—not the politics—will be the subject of a Newsmakers Breakfast Sept. 26 at The Peninsula Club.

Thought leaders Karen Bentley, a former Mecklenburg County Commissioner, and Jim Fuller, a member of the Davidson Board of Commissioners, will field questions for the better part of an hour over breakfast.

Davidson voted ‘no” on HB 514, the controversial piece of legislation that gave North Carolina communities the option to launch their own charter schools. Bentley has had two children in charter schools; Fuller, a prominent attorney, is the husband of a public school teacher.

HB 514 widened an already deep rift between Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools and suburban towns in Mecklenburg County. The town commissioners in Cornelius and Huntersville endorsed HB 514

When that happened, the CMS board virtually rebuked both towns, voting to put new schools in Cornelius and Huntersville at the bottom of the priority list.

The issues here go deeper that political tit for tat.
