Contentious hearings on proposed Academy of Business and Entrepreneurship Charter School conclude

- Last modified: March 6, 2013 at 9:44 AM

Tuesday night marked the last of three School District of Lancaster hearings on the proposed Academy of Business and Entrepreneurship Charter School.

Backers say the K-12 charter, which must obtain permission and funding from the district to open, would pioneer an approach that emphasizes business training and internships along with common core requirements.

ABECS would open this fall with K-4 and then add one grade per year.

Opponents say the proposal is riddled with problems, noting that numerous individuals and businesses previously listed as supporters have withdrawn their support upon becoming better acquainted with the proposal.

About 100 people came to the hearing, which lasted just over two hours.

Here are staff reporter Heather Stauffer's tweets from the meeting:
