Opinion Another promising charter school is wrongly rejected by Montgomery County

Montgomery County school board recently rejected proposed charter school for business-oriented school. School would offer business and finance-related education, but board voted 7-1 to reject bid. School will serve 700 students in sixth to 12th grade starting in the 2024-2025 school year. Let’s hope this misguided decision is overruled by the Maryland State Board of Education, which has refused to approve school applications for charter schools in the county for more than 20 years. The group plans to appeal the rejection to the state board, but parents who want to have a choice in their children's education are disappointed.
