State group responds to low charter school rank


The North Carolina Alliance for Public Charter Schools reacted today to poor rankings for state charter laws we first told you about yesterday. The National Alliance for Public Charter Schools ranked North Carolina 32nd out of 40 states with charter schools. North Carolina only allows 100 charter schools throughout the state. The survey said that was one reason for the Tar Heel State's low ranking.

"Our organization would love for the 2010 state legislature to remove the cap altogether," NC Alliance Chair Paul Norcross said in a statement.

Increasing the cap could be key to getting federal funding.
