Charter school teachers would be hit hard by new Treasury Department ruling on pensions

January 24, 2012 1 minute Read by Michael J. Podgursky

In case you missed it, a short commentary by myself and my colleagues was posted on Fordham's Flypaper blog. In it we discuss the potentially devastating effects of a proposed Treasury department ruling which would have the effect of pushing nearly all charter schools out of state teacher retirement plans. This would affect all states with charter schools in operation.  The Treasury Department invites comment on its proposed ruling on its website until February 6.  We encourage charter school supporters to tell Treasury that charter school teachers and staff should be given the opportunity  to participate in state teacher retirement plans. http://www.edexcellence.net/commentary/education-gadfly-daily/flypaper/2012/charter-school-teachers-would-be-hit-hard-by-new-treasury-department-ruling-on-pensions.html This post written by Michael Podgursky, an Education Reform Fellow at the George W.
