Why a Charter School?

Millions of students across America are not getting the education they deserve. Some are forced to attend chronically under-performing public schools in their communities. Others struggle to fit their learning styles or personalities to outdated educational models that don’t meet their needs. In either case, these students are leaving school unprepared for the workforce or higher education, and limiting their long-term potential.

These children and their families deserve a better option, and public charter schools can provide that option for families who need it.

  • Charter schools are closing the achievement gap. They are raising the bar of what’s possible – and what should be expected – in public education.
  • Charter schools are shattering low expectations and breaking through long-standing barriers that have prevented large numbers of students from underserved communities from achieving educational success.
  • Charter school studies that use the best data and most sophisticated research techniques show charters outperforming comparable traditional public schools. Studies have also been clear that the quality of a state’s charter school law is a critically important factor in the success of public charter schools.
  • Charter schools are always public schools. They never charge tuition, and they were designed to boost student achievement. If a traditional public school is not addressing a student’s needs, charter schools offer parents another public school option. Increasingly, when given that option, parents are choosing to enroll their children in charter schools. In fact, the demand for charter schools is far outpacing the supply in most communities.
