Texas could greatly expand the reach of virtual charter schools even after the digital campuses have faltered across the state and nation. This week, the Senate passed a bill by Sen. Van Taylor, R-Plano, that would expand the state cap on charter schools by allowing operators to hold more than one charter if the programs are distinctly different, such as a virtual school. A separate measure pending in the Senate by Sen. Don Huffines, R-Dallas, would open enrollment in virtual schools to some of the state’s youngest students — kindergarteners through second-graders.
