Indiana Unseats Minnesota in Charter School Law Ranking

| No comments

Indiana has for the first time come out on top of the National Alliance for Public Charter School's annual ranking of state laws.

Indiana climbed five places to unseat Minnesota which has held the number one spot almost every year since 2010 when the Alliance first started issuing the report. Minnesota was the first state in the country to pass a charter law.

Ohio also climbed several spots to 23rd place after lawmakers there overhauled the state's charter law this fall.

Of the states that have charter school laws, Maryland remains at the bottom of the ranking at 43rd. 

The National Alliance ranks states based on a variety of metrics including whether charter schools are held accountable for their performance, have equitable access to facilities, or caps on their growth.
