June 27, 2012
Association says the state shortchanges charters on money for facilities

From The Houston Chronicle: A group representing most of the charter schools in Texas has sued the state, arguing that the nontraditional campuses face unfair restrictions and are shortchanged on funding. The Texas Charter Schools Association contends that the state slights charter operators by not giving them public money for facilities. The group also argues that the state's cap of 215 charter holders is arbitrary. The lawsuit is the sixth filed against the state in recent months over the way it allocates money for public education.
