SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The state Public Education Commission is meeting across the state later this month to hear public comments on proposals for new charter schools.
The commission will hold hearings Aug. 20-24 in Taos, Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Columbus, Deming, Las Cruces, Gadsden, Alamogordo, and Carlsbad.
There are applications pending before the commission to establish 14 new charter schools.
The commission meets in September in Santa Fe to vote on whether to approve the schools.
Charter schools are public schools freed from some traditional educational requirements to help them offer innovative programs.
