Ruling in Washington State Harms Low-income Families
Tallahassee, Fla. – Today, the Washington State Supreme Court said it will not reconsider a September ruling that charter schools are unconstitutional in the state. Alex Kelly, National Legislative Director for Excellence in Education (@Excel_National) issued the following statement.
“The Washington State Supreme Court decision goes against the wishes of the state’s voters and is particularly harmful to low-income families. Charter schools give all parents the choice of putting their children in a better learning environment if their traditional public school isn’t meeting their needs. We encourage Washington lawmakers to take a stand for children and address this issue promptly.”
