Hawaii Charter School Law Improves from 35th to 14th in Nation

From National Alliance for Public Charter Schools

Hawaii’s score increased from 74 points in 2012 to 139 points this year. Its ranking went from #35 (out of 42) to #14 (out of 43).

Some of the score change happened because of adjustments in our methodology for Components #2, #3, #12, #15, #18, and #19. However, Hawaii overhauled its charter law, which increased its score for Components #1, #4, #5, #8, #9, #10, #11, #15, #18, and #19.

Hawaii’s law still needs significant improvement in several areas, including beefing up the requirements for charter application, review, and decision-making processes, exempting charter schools from collective bargaining agreements, and ensuring equitable operational funding and equitable access to capital funding and facilities.
