The United States spends over $500 billion annually on public elementary and secondary education. With varying expenditures among school districts and schools, along with large disparities in funding received, high-quality educational opportunity can sometimes be hindered. Our attorneys work to ensure education adequacy because we understand the long-term economic impact.
Our experience with Education law includes:
• Helping a charter school to obtain over $300,000 per year in funding required under Georgia law.
• Working with school districts in litigation addressing the constitutionality of state funding.
• Negotiating agreements between charter schools, education management organizations (“EMOs”), and other partners.
• Advising charter school applicants with petitions to districts and other authorizers, grant applications, and bylaws.
