Charter school named after guv

Move over Assemblywoman Wilmer Amina Carter, someone else in the Capitol has a California public school named after them.

On Monday, the governor's office announced a Woodland Hills charter elementary school will be renamed the CHIME Institute's Arnold Schwarzenegger Elementary School.

The school was named "Charter School of the Year" by the California Charter School Association in 2005

Hey, and maybe this will help the charter schools association help move "a little-known bill that contains $18 million in critical funding for charter schools (that) was approved by the Assembly but never made it out of the chamber," as John Howard reported for Capitol Weekly about a wayward budget trailer bill.
