About Public Charter Schools
Public charter schools are independent, public, and tuition-free schools that are given the freedom to be more innovative while being held accountable for advancing student achievement. Since 2010, many research studies have found that students in charter schools do better in school than their traditional school peers. For example, one study by the Center for Research on Education Outcomes at Stanford University found that charter schools do a better job teaching low income students, minority students, and students who are still learning English than traditional schools. Separate studies by the Center on Reinventing Public Education and Mathematica Policy Research have found that charter school students are more likely to graduate from high school, go on to college, stay in college and have higher earnings in early adulthood.

Research & Data

In a new report, Never Going Back: An Analysis of Parent Sentiment on Education, the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools examines results from a survey of more than 5,000 parents conducted by The Harris Poll in May 2022. The big takeaway is that parents overwhelmingly want the freedom to choose the best education option for their children. This rings true across all races, political ideologies, and geographies. Charter schools throughout the nation have the ability to give families the freedom to choose a public education experience that best fits the needs of their child.

In order for parents and students to receive the freedom that they are looking for, a voice needs to be heard. We are that voice.
