A place for California parents to connect with the charter public school community

100%

We’ll say it again: Charter public schools serve everyone! They are 100 percent public. They are 100 percent free. They are 100 percent open to all. Charter schools are diverse and serve a student population that mirrors traditional public schools.

Let’s clear the confusion brought about by critics’ frequent (and tired) misleading claims: Charter public schools do not have special eligibility or entrance requirements. No student can be excluded based on disability, test scores, income, or any other reason.

During this challenging time for the charter school movement in California, it’s up to all of us to drive home the point that these schools are free, public, and open to all. Our continued campaign to stop the summer slide about charter public schools presents the perfect opportunity to do just that! Be sure to share this post with family and friends today!
