Wilson Board Rejects Charter School
Board members not convinced by Business and Entrepreneurship Academy's proposal.
The Wilson Area School Board has rejected a business-themed charter school that had wanted to open up in West Easton
Board members said they weren't convinced the Business and Entrepreneurship Academy Charter High School had enough support from the community, parents, and educators, the Express-Times reports.
And the Morning Call notes that a board resolution said board members thought the school hadn't shown plans to teach consumer sciences, health, music and other "core areas."
Wilson board members had expressed some skepticism when school representatives first came before them in December. The school had support in Easton from members of the Greater Shiloh Church and its Pastor Phillip Davis, as well as former Bethlehem Area School District Superintendent Joseph Lewis.
