The October 2007 issue of School Reform News reports on victories for charter schools from Arizona to Maryland. On page 1:
- The Maryland Court of Appeals ruled the state's charter schools are entitled by law to the same per-pupil funding other public schools receive.
- A Maricopa County Court judge ruled five Arizona charter schools must abide by all state standards for now.
- Legislative efforts to give tax deductions to parents who want to enroll their children in private schools fizzed in Louisiana after one bill was vetoed and another was voted down.
- Rank-and-file teachers are becoming increasingly fed up with the far-left policies of the National Association of Education.
Also in this issue: DC vouchers, charter schools in Illinois and New Orleans, judicial school spending mandates, graduation rates, the importance of education in the 2008 campaign, Georgia's special-needs scholarship, Pennsylvania's education tax credit, NCLB, and the NEA. Jillian Metz reviews School Choice: The Findings by Dr. Herbert Walberg, and Jim Waters reviews From Contracts to Classrooms: Covering Teachers Unions, a valuable primer for education reporters.
