BK charter school network on chopping block

The Department of Education (DOE) says it wants to close an entire charter school network in Brooklyn, potentially affecting more than 1,500 students.

According to published reports, officials announced a plan to shut down the Believe Network, which includes three schools throughout Williamsburg.

The DOE sited a misuse of funds and management problems as some of the reasons for its decision. The schools now have a month to respond.
