Unfortunately it appears the Murphy's administration policy is to block new Charter schools from opening. I was following the efforts of a group here in Jersey City to open a Montessori based charter, but it appears their application will never be approved under the current regime in Trenton.

It was the first time in at least a decade that the state has rejected every charter school bid in a cycle, and this time without even interviewing the applicants, according to charter-school advocates.

Far as I can tell the Charter issue is a mess from both sides. I like the outsider idea, but don't think "for profit" has a place. The moral hazard is too great. LCCS is a great model: nonprofit, separate union contract. On the other side the bloated districts see them as a threat and will do anything to stop them instead of downsizing their ridiculously expensive administrations to fit the size of their student body, whatever that may be.

The state is shutting down a troubled charter school with campuses in Newark and Jersey City, one of four schools that Newark’s schools chief had urged the state to close.

M.E.T.S. Charter School must cease operations after this school year due to persistent concerns about low academic achievement, chaotic classrooms, and high staff turnover, the state’s education commissioner said in a letter Monday that was obtained by Chalkbeat. The move leaves roughly 700 students to find new placements for the fall.
