Eddie Goodall, the executive director of the N.C. Public Charter Schools Association, is complaining that Paul Norcross and Baker Mitchell should have recused themselves from a May 12 vote on the charter application for Bastiat Classical School.
Did Paul Norcross vote to approve Phil Berger Jr's charter school?
With their votes, the school’s application failed 5-4, according to Goodall’s complaint.
Norcross and Mitchell serve on the state’s charter school advisory board.
The advisory board recommends to the State Board of Education whether to grant or deny charter applications.
Goodall argued that the board should not include members tied to an organization that collects dues and fees from schools the board regulates.
How about members tied to personally profiting from charter schools
in the same state?
In some cases, schools seeking a charter might automatically have two votes against them, he said. “That was a case where they just really went too far,” Goodall said of the May 12 vote.
Goodall said he filed complaints last week against Norcross and Mitchell.
...Norcross, who cofounded and is still involved in Phoenix Academy in High Point, declined to comment.
