This weekend the Governor vetoed AB 787. The measure would have prevented a charter school from operating as a for-profit or being operated by a for-profit corporation. It was sponsored by the California Teachers Association and targeted a number of charter schools in the state. Additionally, the language was vague and brought in to question contracts that several charter schools have with numerous providers and vendors. The Governor’s veto message was strong and pointed out the ambiguous language in the bill. Once again he has shown himself to be a strong proponent of parent and student choice.
