A state commission denies Dothan its first charter school.  In a meeting  on Monday the Alabama Public Charter School Commission voted 8-0 to deny the Barnabas School of Leadership a charter school status.  The school was supposed to open last year but was given an extension to 2024 after legal issues with the founding pastor.
