Charter schools.

A new report from the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools, "How State Charter Laws Rank Against The New Model Public Charter School Law, "assesses the strengths of each state's charter school law against the 20 essential components of a strong law contained in the new model public charter school law released by the Alliance in June 2009. Evaluating each state law against each component, the Alliance ranks each law from strongest to weakest. "These new rankings not only show which state laws are making the grade," according to National Alliance President and CEO Nelson Smith, "but also show how they do it: by paying attention to specific issues that are crucial to school and student success."
