From the Seattle Times: “Charter Schools Ruled Constitutional”

The state Supreme Court ruled Thursday that funding charter schools with lottery money does not violate the state constitution.

Charter-school advocates called the ruling a win. “Today’s ruling is a victory for the students of Washington state, a win for public education and a big step forward in the fight to close the opportunity gap that persists in our state,” Washington State Association of Charter Schools CEO Patrick D’Amelio said in a statement. “Today’s decision marks an important step forward for Washington.”
