Charter schools are unconstitutional in Washington state, and the state's high court says it will not reconsider its September decision.

Justice Antonin Scalia restates his doubts about the court's precedents on a constitutional right of parents to direct the upbringing of their children.

The Ohio legislature passed HB2 in early October, revamping the way the state regulates charter schools following reports of widespread corruption, financial mismanagement, and poor academic outcomes among some of the state's schools.

To build partnerships with parents from different cultures takes some intentionality and creative outreach.
