Measuring Up to the Model: A Ranking of State Charter School Laws, 2014

National Alliance for Public Charter SchoolsIn this report, we evaluate each state’s charter school law against the 20 essential components of a strong public charter school law. These 20 components are drawn from National Alliance’s A New Model Law For Supporting The Growth Of High-Quality Public Charter Schools.

Over the past few years, there has been significant activity in state capitals to improve public charter school laws, and 2013 was no exception. Governors and legislators from coast to coast worked to lift caps that are constraining growth, enhance quality controls to better encourage the opening of great schools, and provide additional funding to decrease the equity gap between public charter school students and their counterparts in traditional public schools. All of this work was done with one simple goal in mind: create more high-quality public charter schools to meet the surging parental demand.
