A Tool for Comparing State Charter School Laws

Measuring Up to the Model

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.
