WA Charters Statement: Supreme Court Ruling on Charter Law

Today, the Washington Supreme Court issued its ruling on public charter schools in our state. Legal experts are carefully reviewing the decision to determine how it will be applied, and we will have a full statement as soon as we have more details.

Washington state’s voter-approved public charter school law was crafted to be one of the strongest in the country, in order to ensure that students have access to an excellent education in any public school. WA Charters stands with the many respected educators, advocates, community leaders and parents—as well as the approved charter school leaders—who have defended the voter-approved public charter school law.
