Jim and Fawn Spady have been working on the development of charter public schools in the state of Washington since 1994. When Washington’s first charter school legislation was approved in March 2004, they wanted to make sure that Washington’s charter schools would be successful right from the start. To that end, they immediately started the Washington Charter School Resource Center.
