San Antonio parents who aren’t satisfied with their neighborhood public school have plenty of options.
“Education options abound”, Lindsay Kastner, San Antonio Express-News, August 7, 2013.
San Antonio parents: Do you feel like you have “plenty of options”? I don’t. But I’m glad there are several new charter schools opening this year.
The article was printed last Sunday, but evidently was written a few weeks ago, so let me bring it up to date:
- BASIS San Antonio is opening in 2013, but a week late. See this earlier post.
- The new Hebrew language immersion charter school is calling itself Eleanor Kolitz Hebrew Language Academy, not Ben Yehuda Academy (the name on their charter application). See this earlier post.
- Great Hearts may have a location for Fall 2014. See this earlier post.
- Anne Frank Inspire Academy has delayed its opening until the 2014-15 school year. See this earlier post.
- IDEA South Flores opened this month on the South Side. See this earlier post.
Even with these new schools opening, the feedback that I am hearing from parents is that they are still looking for more options. Also, many charter schools have long waiting lists. (Watch the video in this earlier post.)
