WBBM Newsradio Political Editor Craig Dellimore reports the mayor didn’t dispute a published study showing privately-run charter schools might be performing no better than regular public schools.

“The goal is to have a quality education that prepares a child for college, and a career. That’s our goal,” he said. “I’ve told two charters, ‘You’re going to close this year.’ We put 11 on warning.”

The mayor said parents should have a choice between charters, neighborhood schools, international baccalaureate programs, military schools, and specialized schools like the Austin Polytechnical Academy – a high school that focuses on manufacturing and engineering.
