Charter schools

For the first time in state history, the state Senate passed a bill Thursday to allow publicly funded charter schools.
Charter schools run under a contract that frees them from most state education rules. Advocates have been trying to get bills to allow this through the Washington legislature for years.
The bill now goes to the House, where it's expected to pass.
