RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- A bill seeking elimination of North Carolina's 100-school limit on charter schools is getting its first debate in the General Assembly. The Senate Education/Higher Education Committee scheduled discussion Wednesday on a bill that would remove the cap that's been in place since the charter school idea began in the state 15 years ago. Republican candidates placed ending the cap on their to-do list if elected to the majority. Charter schools have open enrollment and don't charge tuition. But they are run by private boards and are exempt from many rules imposed on traditional public schools. The North Carolina Association of Educators has dropped its opposition to lifting the cap.
