The following sections examine litigation around charter school renewals and revocations; the level of formality required for hearings for applications, revocations, and renewals; litigation that has arisen during the operation of the charter; and the matter of race. The chapter closes with an analysis of the legal issues charter schools have faced with respect to students with disabilities.
