Landmark Decision Validates Louisiana’s Charter Schools



Today, the Louisiana Supreme Court issued a ruling in the case of Iberville Parish School Board, et al v. Louisiana State Elementary and Secondary Education Board, upholding the constitutionality of the state’s charter school funding model.

“This landmark decision validates the important role of charter schools in helping thousands of Louisiana students receive a quality education.

 

“The Court’s ruling is a clear victory for Louisiana families, especially those struggling to find an educational setting that meets the needs of their children. Each and every student, regardless of income or zip code, deserves access to an education that prepares them for lifelong success.”

Nationwide, public charter schools serve more than 3 million students, providing opportunity and access to a quality education.
