'Florida’s top education officials are considering giving special operating status to a major Florida charter school network that may not meet all the criteria lawmakers set up to obtain that status.A controversial program signed into law in June gives charter school networks designated as “Hope Operators” the ability to open a “School of Hope” within five miles of a persistently low-performing public school. Those operators, collectively, get access to a pot of tens of millions of dollars to cover startup costs, personnel and specialized educational offerings, plus are given the flexibility of being exempt from a long list of state public education laws.
