Every Texan opposes SB 28. Texas voters already have too little oversight over of the placement and expansion of charter schools. This bill limits the role the elected SBOE has in making decisions on charters while expanding the powers of the unelected Commission of Education. While traditional ISDs must ask the voters for approval before spending tax dollars to build new facilities, unelected charter boards with no ties to the community expand while leaving the community out of the process. SB 28 will make this worse by giving charter schools special privileges to place facilities without regard to local regulations.
