Tuesday on Lubbock's First News, Mark Martin of Lubbock's Premier Charter Schools joined Tom Collins and Laura Mac to talk about charter schools.

Premier Charter Schools are state accredited, and have no district lines so anyone from any district in the area may attend. Charter schools offer alternatively scheduled and paced curriculum for those needing other than standard school schedules, included accelerated programs.
