  • National Charter Schools Week

    This week is “National Charter Schools Week,” and the Center for Education Reform has a number of ideas for how you can celebrate. The National Alliance for Public Charter Schools also released a new poll finding: “More than three out of four voters (77%) favor giving parents more options when choosing a public school for their children.”

    Charter schools are one of the growing options in American education. Today, 40 states and the District of Columbia allow charter schools. In all, more than a million children are attending one of the nation’s 4,100 public charter schools. To learn more about charter schools and school choice options in the United States, see this Heritage report from January.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
