MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Parents and students will march to the Alabama Capitol Wednesday in a rally for school choice.

Republican legislators expect to make a push in the upcoming session to establish charter schools in the state. Charter schools are publically funded schools that operate outside the rules of normal public schools.

Alabama is one of eight states without charter schools.

The charter school bill will be Republicans’ first major education policy push after passing a private school tax credit program in 2013.

The march begins at 9 .m. and the rally begins at 10 a.m.
