Watch the conversation that took place about #CharterSchoolaccountability recently when Montgomery County Rep. Steve McCarter; Assistant Superintendent of North Penn, Dr. Diane Holben; and teachers Kitty Semisch and Bill Senavaitis, sat down to discuss the topic.
Said Kitty, “How is it that public schools are under greater and greater and greater scrutiny and charter schools are under increasingly loose regulation?
