School Board Candidates Discuss Charter Schools
Charter schools are public schools with one huge exception they don't have to play by the exact same rules as their counterparts. The role of those schools was one topic of conversation at a forum Thursday evening. Candidates took questions from people at Hoggetowne Middle School. Hoggetowne is a public charter school in Gainesville.
"Ideally, we would work in synergy with our other public school counterparts that means we are going to try things that are a little different," said Principal Gaspar Nichols.
