Charter Schools USA
The former principal of an Aventura charter school must be a bit distraught right now. After winning a $155 million lawsuit against her former employer, a Miami-Dade judge took it all away.
A new lawsuit filed by attorney Jeff Herman alleges that a 7-year-old boy was bullied and sexually assaulted by an 11-year-old boy at the Downtown Miami Charter School.
Florida school districts are flooded with applications for new charter schools, motivated by several new laws that make it easier to start traditional and virtual charters.
