‘White paper’ challenges plans for Elite Charter School – Daily Republic

By Ryan McCarthy

Ambitious enrollment claims by backers of the proposed Elite Charter School come despite declines in the number of students attending Vallejo public schools when Ramona Bishop, lead petitioner for Elite, was superintendent there, opponents of the charter school contend.

A white paper titled “Grounds for Denial of the Elite Public Schools Charter Petition,” written by four people involved in public schools, also states that when Bishop was superintendent of the Vallejo City School District the dropout rates were much higher than any other school district in Solano County.

Marianne Kearney-Brown, among the people who prepared the paper, said she is not opposed in principle to charter schools and would support Elite if she believed it was warranted.
