The Los Angeles Times reports Monday about the tensions between Logan Elementary and Gabriella Charter School, LAUSD and charter schools that share a campus--and limited space--in Echo Park.
The Times does not mention it, but Gabriella's charter and facilities use permit were recently renewed for five years by the LAUSD trustees at an acrimonious board meeting.
So those issues are not likely to go away, though LAUSD Superintendent John Deasy has been charged with coming up with a plan that will not stifle growth for either school.
Loyal readers will know we've covered this subject for a long time as part of our larger ongoing coverage of the charter school movement in general.
We've also had great participation by bloggers in the community around the issues raised when two schools share a campus--and when they're both growing.
(See a few of those pieces below.)
Tell us what you think of the Times piece and maybe volunteer a comment or a blog yourself.
And consider this: are Echo Park and Silver Lake doing a better job now communicating around the issue of charter schools?
We think so--and we've been watching for a while.
