If you’re a charter school — and thus eligible for taxpayer money — in North Carolina, there are some rules you have to follow. Like this one:
May a public charter school be religious in nature?
No. As with other public schools in North Carolina, public charter schools must be non-religious in their programs, admissions policies, governance, employment practices and all other operations. Like other public schools, however, public charter schools may enter into partnerships with any community group for secular purposes. Public charter schools must sign off yearly that they are not religious-based entities.
