NJ Department of Education Closes two Camden Charter Schools, Renews Ten Others

"Charter schools in Camden and Pemberton must close at the end of the school year after the Department of Education revoked their charters, officials announced yesterday.,"as reported by Peggy McGlone.

"Students attending DUE Charter School in Camden and the Renaissance Regional Leadership Charter School in Pemberton were performing in the bottom 14 percent of all schools, according to the department. Officials said there was no evidence that the schools had the leadership capacity to improve student achievement. They must close their doors at the end of the school year."

"Ten other schools had their charters renewed for five more years. In addition, two Newark schools — the Marion P. Thomas Charter School and the Visions Academy Charter High School — were also given permission to merge into one pre-K through Grade 12 operation."
