It’s National Charter Schools Week! Join Charter School Capital as we celebrate the nearly 3 million public charter school students along with all the teachers, administrators and staff across 42 states plus the District of Columbia. The growth of the charter movement during the past 25 years, since the first charter law implemented in Minnesota, has been incredible, from nearly 2,000 students attending public charter schools in 2000-2001 school year to almost 7,000 enrolled this school year.
There are many ways you too can celebrate charter schools this week. The National Alliance for Public Charter Schools offers a host of tools you can access, including infographics, detailed one-sheets around the myths and facts about charters, to templates for press releases your school can use now. There’s also a big showing across social media – #CharterSchoolsWeek! You can access social avatars and other social icons from the National Alliance as well. Easy to download and then use across your own social pages in celebration of National Charter Schools Week. Show your support and engage.
“Though (public charter schools) only account for roughly 7% of public schools in the United States, they make up 1/3 of the top 100 schools in both the U.S. News and Washington Post lists.” ~ Nina Rees, CEO, National Alliance for Public Charter Schools (Charter Schools Stack Up Well, U.S. News & World Report)
