American Indian Charter School in Oakland, California

Clip | 4m 31s | Video has closed captioning.

American Indian Charter School ranked among the top middle schools in California. But in the spring of 2013 the Oakland Public School District voted to shut down all three American Indian Schools, because the charter school had chosen to use its own special education services, and not those controlled by the state; that resulted in a loss of revenue to the public school system.
