Legislation may set the terms for charter school expansion in county, state
Just a month after her children started attending Monarch Academy in Glen Burnie, Laura Dorsey-Elson knew what she was going to do next: Lobby for a charter high school.
Dorsey-Elson’s children, now in third and sixth grades at Monarch, started there last year. She had heard good reviews from other parents in the area.
“The beautiful part of charter schools is that they have a lot of control creating exactly the kind of class culture and school culture,” Dorsey-Elson said.
She said the children love it and she is pleased with how they are being educated. Now she’s worried that come ninth grade, this sort of education will end.
