Charlotte School of Law is closed after eight months of fighting to stay open.  The North Carolina Attorney General's Office said Tuesday the for-profit school can no longer operate and, if it tries to, the department will force it to shut down. That's because the school's license has expired.

Charlotte School of Law said last week it expects to offer students federal loans again in time for the fall semester. To do that, the school has to agree to certain conditions from the U.S. Department of Education. We now have a better idea of what those conditions are.

Charlotte School of Law expects to offer federal loans to students for the fall semester. But to stay open, it must convince its state licensor the school is financially stable. That deadline is Tuesday.

Charlotte School of Law is on probation with the American Bar Association, has had its federal loan money yanked by the Department of Education and now it's in trouble with its state licensor, the UNC Board of Governors. 

The board decided yesterday to give the law school until August 1st to prove that it's financially sound and in compliance with state licensure standards.  That includes providing proof of a guaranty bond that would refund students' tuition if the school closed mid-semester.

There's a lot of focus on getting low-income students to make the grade. But many of these students are already achieving and still don't get into gifted or accelerated classes. A new series by the Charlotte Observer and Raleigh News Observer looks at why that happens. Reporters examined seven years of data and found that 9,000 low-income children in North Carolina were counted out of classes that could have opened new opportunities.
