Charter Schools Score: 65%
Connecticut only has one entity that can authorize charter schools is the state board of education. The State Board is very bureaucratic making it very difficult for charters to open which has drastically cut the growth of charters in Connecticut short. In addition, a lack of funding and a heavy regulatory environment further limited charter school growth.
