Abstract

The most fundamental part of a charter school is its charter, its governing document. This article traces the history of Louisiana's charter system from its inception and walks through the legal process of obtaining and retaining a charter and what happens to cause a charter to be revoked. Louisiana provides for five types of charters via statute that have different avenues of funding and different legal requirements from the state. Louisiana provides an excellent case study for the process of chartering because of the recent boom of charter schools in the area; there are lessons to be learned both in what Louisiana does right and what it does wrong for other states wishing to navigate and build a process for charter schools.

Keywords: education, charter schools
