Your Call: Groups call for charter school moratorium and more oversight
On the November 17th edition of Your Call, is it time for a charter school moratorium?

Do the problems of charters outweigh their benefits? What impact do they have on neighborhoods, students, and public schools? It's Your Call, with me, Renee Kemp, and you.
