EUNICE – Caroline Roemer Shirley agrees with critics on count -- charter schools are competition for the public school system.
Shirley is executive director of the Louisiana Association of Public Charter Schools, the spokeswoman for an organization that advocates accountable charter schools as an alternative for parents deciding where their child can best get an education.
There is new concern that Eunice could lose its state Department of Motor Vehicles office, forcing residents to stand in line at the Opelousas DMV in the near future.
The office is supposed to move from the old American Legion building on Park Avenue to the former Guilory Developmental Center but almost nothing has transpired since that agreement was reached more than a year ago.
And now, officials indicate, DMV is again eyeing the Eunice office as one in the “chopping block” line if the department moves forward with a proposal to consolidate to one DMV office per parish.
