VICTORY FOR STUDENTS AND FAMILIES IN EL CENTRO DE LA RAZA V. WASHINGTON


In October 2018, the Washington State Supreme Court ruled in favor of charter students and families.

The decision is a victory for the students of Washington state, a win for public education, and a big step forward in the fight to close the opportunity gap that persists in our state. The Washington Supreme Court has given 3,400 students and their families from across our state new hope by affirming that charter public schools will continue to be a valuable part of our public education system.
