A Tool for Comparing State Charter School Laws and Movements

Measuring Up


To help states create laws that support high-quality public charter schools, the National Alliance has developed a model state law. Each year, we rank states based on how well their laws align to this model. You can view results for each state by total score or by individual component of the law. Or you can download the full report.

As a companion to our model law rankings, in 2014 we launched the first-ever Health of the Public Charter School Movement: A State-by-State Analysis to evaluate states on the growth, quality, and innovation of their charter school movement. You can view these results by clicking on “Health of the Movement” tab, or you can download the full report.
