SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The state director for charter schools is resigning.
Patricia Bradley says the demands of the growing movement are daunting and she has some personal reasons for stepping down.
Bradley took the director's job last summer after the Legislature created the state Charter School Board. She has worked for the Utah Office of Education since 1992.
Utah has 28 charter schools with an enrollment of six-thousand, 250 students. Thousands more are on waiting lists to enroll.
Bradley's resignation is effective at the end of the month.
