This is from the Courier Journal:
Charters are publicly funded schools that are run by outside organizations, rather than a traditional school district and school board. They do not charge tuition.

Those outside organizations enter into a contract, or a charter, with their authorizer – which, under the bill, would be the local school district or the mayor of Louisville or Lexington. Those contracts spell out what a charter school must do and how it will be kept accountable.

Under the bill, charter schools would still be held accountable to the state-mandated testing and accountability system, like other public schools.
