As waves of educational reform spread across the United States, charter schools continue to emerge as an alternative to the traditional public school. This study examined funding, governance, and accountability provisions of nationwide charter school legislation to ascertain similarities, differences, litigated challenges and funding issues throughout the United States of America. In order to study charter school legislation and litigation, all of the United States charter school legislation was collected along with American court cases related to charter schools and charter legislation. Legislation was reviewed to identify similarities and differences in funding, accountability and governance provisions throughout America. Court cases, involving charter schools and charter school legislation, were reviewed to identify the types of issues being litigated and the resulting legal decisions.
