Baltimore: education

Forum to be held on charter schools

The Baltimore school system will hold a public forum Tuesday on 13 applications to establish charter schools for the 2007-2008 academic year.

The forum will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. in the boardroom at school system headquarters, 200 E. North Ave.

Charter schools are public schools that operate independently, under contracts with local school boards.

During the forum, applicants will describe their proposals for charter schools, and city residents will have an opportunity to comment on them.
