Anaheim Union High School District Calls for a Temporary Moratorium on Approval of Charter Schools
 ANAHEIM—Board members of the Anaheim Union High School District and Superintendent Michael Matsuda on December 18 called for the state of California to implement a temporary moratorium on the approval of charter schools until legislators fix the overly permissive law that enables charters to operate on a business model whose main goal is to make money. “Although there is nothing wrong with making money, when it comes to public education, our children should be our first priority,” Superintendent Matsuda said. “While charter school proponents may say they care about kids, many charters operate in the shadows with no transparency, no accountability, and no public review.”

The superintendent cited the example of Magnolia Science Academy, one of two charter applications recently submitted to AUHSD.
