Cap update

according to an e-bulletin by the New York Charter School Association, all is not lost for lifting the cap on charter schools in NY:
While an agreement was not reached as the session ended, the discussions at the Capitol have provided the charter school movement with a tremendous boost. The Legislature may reconvene later this year to continue work on some issues left unresolved —such as the charter school cap.
and as the Albany Times Union reported about the cap lift, "... such a law would be high on the to-do lists of lawmakers next year, especially for those representing largely black and Hispanic districts."
