The brief Supports the West Virginia Attorney General's Brief Related to the Trial Court’s Misinterpretation of the State Constitution

Arlington, VA – Today the National Coalition for Public School Options (PSO), a national parent advocacy organization focused on ensuring every child has access to the best quality education, filed an amicus brief urging the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals to allow the state’s new charter school law to go into effect as intended by the state legislature. PSO’s amicus brief was filed in support of a brief filed by Attorney General Patrick Morrisey that explains to the Court how the Kanawha County Court misinterpreted and applied Section 12, Article 10 of the West Virginia Constitution to block the establishment of charter schools at a time when parents need education choice the most.

“It’s simply unfair and unjust to continue to trap West Virginia students in a public school system that continues to rank last in the nation in education quality,” said Letrisha Weber, PSO National Board President. “Public charter schools provide families that do not have the means or access to private schools or high-achieving neighborhood public schools with an opportunity to receive a better education.”

PSO argues that the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals cannot ignore the statistical evidence showing the role charter schools play in improving student outcomes and how the law passed by the West Virginia Legislature includes strong authorizing practices consistent with the Legislature’s mandate under the Constitution, as interpreted by the Court, to improve public education across the State.
