The Oklahoma Supreme Court rules that charter schools are PUBLIC SCHOOLS and, therefore, the state CANNOT contract with the St Isidore Catholic Charter school.


St Isadore wasn't just run by the Catholic Church, it planned to incorporate Catholicism "into every aspect of the school." It planned to require students to attend chapel and it refused to abide by nondiscrimination laws that conflicted with its religious tenets.
