Although Tennessee Governor Bill Lee is eagerly growing the charter college sector, a condition panel determined to close a Memphis constitution university simply because of its leaders “misappropriating” nearly $800,000.
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Charter revoked. Today a condition panel agreed with the Memphis Shelby County School board to pull the plug on a community charter faculty.
The Memphis Academy of Overall health Sciences (MAHS) appealed a January 12th selection by the board to revoke the constitution and shut the college. Now, the attraction was denied, MSCS’ ruling was upheld by the Tennessee Community Constitution Faculty Commission.
The determination follows allegations of former school directors misspending school dollars, accused of misappropriating approximately $800,000 in funding.
“At least six yrs of mismanagement, and it is difficult to un-ring that bell,” stated a member of the condition charter college board.
The parents and pupils had been unhappy but the missing money mattered.
