The US 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, access to high-quality educational opportunities can sometimes be hindered.
Our team specializes in K-12 school finance and charter school law and advises re: board governance, bylaws, and business-related issues. The education team is led by former elementary school teacher with Teach for America, Chris Adams. From first-hand experience, he understands the context surrounding education issues at the local, state, and federal level.
Our experience with Education Law includes:
- Advising charter school applicants with petitions to districts and other authorizers, grant applications, and bylaws
- Assisting charter schools in obtaining funding required by Georgia law
- Disciplinary actions
- Negotiating agreements between charter schools, education management organizations (“EMOs”), and other partners
- Working with school districts in litigation addressing the constitutionality of state funding
