Lawton Public Schools planning lawsuit against the State Board of Education

LAWTON, Okla. (TNN) - Lawton Public Schools is planning on filing a lawsuit against the State Board of Education because of a recent Charter School Settlement.

The Oklahoma State Board of Education decided in a 4-3 vote to equalize funding between public schools and charter schools.

This could force school districts to share more money to charter schools.

The decision came from a 2017 lawsuit in which Oklahoma Public Charter School Association sued the State Board of Education to receive the same funding sources as school districts.
