Share What School Choice Means To You

In honor of National School Choice Week (Jan. 26 – Feb. 1, 2014), Charter School Capital wants you to share what school choice means to you and your community.
Charter School CapitalOpen now, the “What Does School Choice Mean to You” contest is accessible on Charter School Capital’s Facebook page. Students, parents, educators, and supporters from the community all are encouraged to share their stories about how charters and choice have impacted their families and lives. As a bonus, everyone who shares a story is automatically entered to win a free Kindle Fire HD.
School Choice has become a powerful movement during the past decade. Charter schools today are positively impacting communities across the nation – increasing educational opportunities and driving up academic performance. A 2012 study by the Florida Department of Education shows that charter school students are outperforming their traditional public school counterparts on almost all benchmarks. In California, underserved or disadvantaged students who would have been left behind in their education have now received their degrees thanks to charters focused on the goal of getting everyone to the finish line.
Freedom to choose the best educational environment for yourself or your children has never been so important. In this rapidly changing digital world, flexibility and innovation have become cornerstones to success. Charter School Capital understands that, and that is why we are proud to be the nation’s leading working capital and facilities funding source for charter schools in the U.S.
Charter School Capital funds more than 400 charter schools serving 400,000 students from California to North Carolina, Ohio to Arizona. That is why we want to hear from you. Coast-to-coast, school choice is making a positive difference in education and we want to hear those stories. Share yours with us today, and then share it with your friends.

  1. When i was looking for a Kindergarten for my daughter, I was somehow led to Pinellas Primary Academy in Largo, Florida. I so grateful to find a school that taught in a way that allowed for all children to excel, especially my quirky daughter. She is a very bright child, but can be quite trying for the traditional teacher and structure of most schools. I knew within the first few weeks of school that I had stumbled upon the best possible school for my child. Her teacher went above and beyond all my expectations and I was never so grateful to have made the choice to attend a charter school. I felt like my daughter won the educational lottery. Attending a charter school is like attending a private school without the pricey tuition and so much more.
    In our second year of attendance the unthinkable happened in my family and my husband suddenly passed away. It was the worst moment of our lives and for the quirky child that is my daughter it could have destroyed her. I truly feel if we were at a different school she may have slipped through the cracks, but we were at a school where all teachers and administrative staff took an interest in my daughter’s well being. They spent time with her during school hours and reached out during their vacations and summer breaks to see how she was progressing. I know that it is because of the out pouring of true dedication from these educators that my daughter is a well adjusted child even in the most adverse of situations. This is our third year of attending Pinellas Primary Academy. We are still adjusting to life without my husband and still have a few bumps in the road, but I know i have a team of individuals with my children’s best interests at heart. My middle child has started Kindergarten this year and i could not be more pleased with her experiences as well. My daughters could not me more different in personalities but both are excelling in their classes. More importantly they love school more than vacations. I was a excellent student but I remember counting down the days until summer vacation, winter break and so forth. It is the opposite for my girls…they make paper chains to count down how many days it will be until they can return to school. As an educator myself I can not express how wonderful it is that my children love school so much, that it is a safe, fun and exciting place to be, and that they would rather be no place else. I am truly grateful for my choice to be at a Charter school.
