How State Charter Laws Rank Against The New Model Public Charter School Law is the first to accurately gauge a states public charter school law with respect to its commitment to the full range of values in the public charter school movement: quality and accountability, funding equity, facilities support, autonomy, and growth and choice. This report looks at each individual state that has a charter school law, assesses the strengths of its law against the 20 essential components of the model law, and ranks them from 1 to 40.
It is closely aligned with the original intent of public charter school law, which is to establish independent public schools that are allowed to be more innovative and are held
accountable for improved student achievement.
