The Republican lawmaker has who has filed charter schools legislation says he expects his bill to get a hearing in the House Education Committee.

A rally for charter schools Tuesday was an effort to ramp up the pressure on lawmakers to allow the non-traditional approach to educating our kids.

The bill's sponsor, Shelbyville Representative Brad Montell, says his proposal does not give school boards the final say on charter schools.

Currently 41 states allow charter schools, which do not operate under many of the regulations placed on public schools.

The state's teachers unions oppose the legislation.
