Charter schools scramble for space -- The Washington Times, 12 Aug 2001 [cached]
The city controls upwards of 300 surplus properties , many of which may be suitable for charter school use , said Malcolm Peabody , president of the D.C. Public Charter School Coalition , in a statement made before the D.C. Council's Committee on Education , Libraries and Recreation in December.Mikki Seligman , a senior policy adviser on education in the mayor's office , said the mayor has had to deal with broader city issues , especially in a situation where space is tight and there are a number of demands from other city agencies..She said the District , unlike most other areas with charter schools , helped the schools find properties.Every year , the city makes some school buildings available exclusively for charter schools to bid on , she said.Fourteen of the 38 empty schools the mayor controls have been rented or sold to charter schools , she said.Also , the mayor is trying to get public and charter schools -- which don't get along all that well -- to share space.The charter schools and public schools have been at loggerheads , she said.But with mayor acting as a peacemaker , we could look at the possibility of co-locations , she said.
