To date, eight states (Minnesota, California, Colorado, Georgia, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, and Wisconsin) have passed some type of charter school legislation. This report provides information on activities and legislation in these states regarding charter school formation, including the roles played by individual teachers and others as organizers, by local school boards as sponsors, and by county or state officials in providing an appeals process and technical assistance. Statutory requirements, legal responsibilities, funding mechanics, and employment issues including hiring and dismissal, collective bargaining, and job security are also detailed. Recommendations to policymakers are also offered considering potential charter school legislation. The following key issues are considered: Who should sponsor? Which state laws/rules should remain? What about the mechanics of funding? Who should govern? How can resistance be overcome? What about private school inclusion? Do charter schools conflict with consolidation efforts? what role should the state play? and Will charter schools cost more? Findings illustrate that charter schools appear to be a viable reform initiative, particularly in states in which "gridlock" over the future of education has occurred. Appendices contain a comparison of charter school laws and examples of charter school legislation enacted in Minnesota, California, Massachusetts, and Colorado. (LMI)
