NAACP Chapters Calls for End to Moratorium on CA Charters
With the United Teachers of Los Angeles on their backs, California legislators are considering a moratorium on the establishment of new charter schools three NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) boards are insisting the moratorium will tarnish the Golden State. Esmeralda Fabián Romero has the story in LASchoolReport.
The San Diego, Riverside and San Bernardino branches have submitted separate resolutions to NAACP’s state board saying they oppose the moratorium, a move that breaks with the state organization’s education chair, Julian Vasquez Heilig, who was a driving force behind the national board voting in favor of the measure.
In an email obtained by LA School Report, Alice A. Huffman, president of the California Hawaii NAACP, told leaders in the three local branches that the state branch “has already taken a position of opposition and would appreciate it if you all would rescind your positions.”
