Rep. Rollins Speaks Out Against Charter Schools

Kentucky’s charter school bill remains in House committee leaving some concerned over whether Rep. Carl Rollins (D) will give the bill a hearing.Rollins was recently interviewed by CN2 and he, again, restated his position against the schools arguing charters don’t improve the public school system and saying the schools don't result in student achievement, despite mixed reports  of which some show success.Instead, Rollins said we would like to create a more comprehensive evaluation system partly based on student achievement. This may include giving peers, students and parents the chance to review a specific teacher, but would weigh the input accordingly.Rollins further said he would consider additional pay for highly evaluated teachers willing to move to a more challenged districts.
