The California Assembly has passed a bill that would limit the number of charter schools in California.

The bill would cap the number of charters to about 1,400 by the year 2017.

Supporters say it is necessary to ensure the charter schools aren't taking money away from traditional schools.

Opponents argue it would mean fewer options for parents trying to ensure their kids a good education.
