“A new report released today by the ACLU and Public Advocates (a California civil rights organization) entitled Unequal Access: How Some California Charter Schools Illegally Restrict Enrollment has found a variety of illegal policies in charters schools. The ACLU and Public Advocates report examines charters schools policies across the state of California and details how they are failing students.
In this report, they provide
(1) an analysis of illegal charter school policies;
(2) a description of the framework of laws that prohibit exclusionary policies; and
(3) recommendations to ensure equal admission.
This report can be a guide for ACLU chapters and civil rights organizations across the nation to hold charters accountable for following federal and state law.”
