As you may know, lawmakers in the General Assembly have filed H 219 Charter School Omnibus.

Other than the original bill authorizing charter schools in 1996, this legislation is the most important bill that charter advocates in our state have ever seen!

 The problem: Local administrators are shortchanging funding for public charter school students.

 The solution: HB 219 would ensure local funding fairness in public education, requiring money to follow the child—whether that child attends a public charter or public district school.
