John Tedesco, the Republican challenger in the race for North Carolina superintendent of public instruction, says he is a strong advocate for school choice. But Tedesco tells N.C. Policy Watch that he believes that there needs to be more oversight of charter schools and virtual for-profit charters seeking to expand across North Carolina.

The state Office of Charter Schools has just three full-time consultants to oversee
133 charter schools. (As Matt Ellinwood noted Tuesday that is one consultant for
every 44 schools.)

Tedesco agrees that ratio is a concern, noting that the state doesn't want charter schools opening up so fast that it sets them up for failure.

Tedesco joins us this week on News & Views to discuss his four-point plan for
revitalizing the public education and his bid to become the next state Superintendent.
