Nina Rees, President and CEO of the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools, released a statement on the U.S. Supreme Court declining to hear the Peltier v. Charter Day School case.
“We are pleased that the Supreme Court has declined to hear the case, allowing the Fourth Circuit’s decision to stand. Charter schools are public schools and are, in fact, state actors for the purposes of protecting students’ federal constitutional rights.
“We are pleased to put this matter behind us and move forward with the critically important work of ensuring every child in this nation has access to a high-quality public education. The actions of the high court affirm that as public school students, charter school students are entitled to the same federal protections as their counterparts who attend district schools.”
