This news clip report is on a 9th circuit court of appeals unanimous decision that some civil rights guarantees do not pertain to employees of charter schools in AZ (and presumably more broadly, tho perhaps conditioned on state law - that's a guess). Reasoning is that tho charters are 'public schools' the fact that they are private companies trumps that. This is probably the most liberal US circuit.
I recall vaguely seeing something similar a year or so ago - a way in which charters have the benefits of being 'public' but the 'rights' of being private. Seems somehow similar to what is going on with corporations - the rights of people but not really the obligations.
