Charter School Expansion Statewide

Bills were prefiled for the next congressional session, which starts January 13. One in particular (Senate Bill 64), expands the current charter school law to any place with "school districts that are not classified as accredited" (as opposed to just the St. Louis and Kansas City areas).

This extension will add an aspect of statewide fairness and significantly improve opportunity for many children. These parents will no longer be stuck in ineffective schools because of this much-deserved school choice!
