Charter school 'watchdog'
to speak Sept. 19


      The first meeting of the Romeo AAUW will be held at 7 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 19, at the Romeo Community Center located at 361 Morton Street.
       The public program will be "Charter Schools and the Education Achievement Authority - What Are They and What We Need to Know About Them."
       Mary T. Wood, an advocate for public education and for accountability of charter schools, will be the guest speaker.
       Wood is considered a self-motivated watchdog of Michigan's complicated charter school system. She has thoroughly researched the charter system and claims that the public needs to know what these charters are, what they do, how they profit and who profits from the charters. Her presentation will explain how the Michigan charter got started and "how it has detoured into something else."
       Teachers, students, parents, board members and any interested parties are welcome to attend.
