Rocketship crash landing?

In a huge retreat from their ambitious plans, Rocketship charter schools will no longer be opening the 20 new schools they had requested from the SCCBOE.

There's a complete document from the SCCBOE meeting that describes the settlement of a lawsuit brought by a number of school districts that would have been invaded by Rocketship's expansion plans.  One has to wonder whether this large scale retreat is due to the declining scores at a number of Rocketship schools.  In any case, it's a victory for public schools in our area.
