Charter school Initiative 1240 in Washington State

Charter school Initiative 1240 squeaked through with a 1% lead. Not too bad considering the pro-charter folks forked out over $10M compared to the rest of us who were able to scrape together $750,000 in a very short period of time.

Because it appears that people still have a lot of questions about this initiative, I decided to post all of the information that has been accrued on this page for reference.
