25 Years of Public Charter Schools

  • Charter Schools Must Meet and Exceed High Standards

    Charter schools are required to live up to expectations — to ensure that all students have access to the high-quality educational opportunities that they are seeking. 

    Each year, between 3% and 4% of charter schools close, typically due to poor performance. In the 2014-15 school year, for example, 272 charter schools nationally were closed, according to the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools.
