BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A state audit is criticizing how Louisiana's education department monitors charter schools. The report from Legislative Auditor Daryl Purpera's office found the education department weighed critical and noncritical violations equally in determining school performance ratings. The department, auditors say, should be judging charter schools based on the severity of a violation. The education department says it is working to update the scoring system.
