Citizens for 1 files Amicus Curaie brief with the Louisiana Supreme Court –Appeal of ruling on Type 2 Charter funding to be heard September 5


Sept 1, 2017

On behalf of 16,000 public school students, education rights advocates, including Citizens for 1 Greater New Orleans, are asking the Louisiana Supreme Court to uphold funding for Type 2 charter schools. Oral argument is set to be heard on September 5, 2017, before Louisiana's highest court and is the culmination of a years-long fight for the 32 Type 2 Charter schools that receive dollars from the state-run funding program. This case directly threatens the choice of parents and families to obtain a quality public education by seeking to strip these schools of state funding.

To attend:

  • When: Sept. 5th at 2 pm
  • Where: Louisiana Supreme Court, 400 Royal St #4200, New Orleans, LA 70130
