The following analyses suggest that religion is more of a factor in state charter school regulations than previously thought.

ResultsThe findings support the assertion that religious interestsparticularly evangelicalsare influential in state charter school regulation. ConclusionConsistent with Deckman (), it is suggested that religious factors should not be overlooked when analyzing education policy.
