The Education Commission of the States recognized last week’s National School Choice Week by updating its school choice resources and releasing several new school choice resources, including our 50-State Comparison: Charter School Policies. This comprehensive resource shows how each state approaches 30 different elements of charter school policies, such as authorization, accountability, financing, teachers and virtual charters.

Senate convenes Tuesday at noon. House convenes Thursday at noon.

The N.C. State Board of Education meets on Wednesday and Thursday.
