Representative Toalson Reisch Files Bill for Charter Schools in Columbia

Representative Cheri Toalson Reisch of Hallsville has filed House Bill 1205, which would bring charter schools to Columbia.

Columbia School Superintendent Brian Yearwood criticized Toalson Reisch last August for perpetuating without evidence unfounded claims of litter boxes in schools. Toalson Reisch adds current enrollment numbers also show the need for a change.

Toalson Reisch’s bill would only apply to Columbia. It is still waiting for a committee assignment.
