Charter schools—which are tuition-free public schools created and operated by parents, organizations, or community groups to fill an educational need not otherwise offered by traditional schools—can direct their resources where their students need them most.
Charter schools are schools of choice: parents select the school their child attends. Families and community members are welcomed in charter schools and are treated as partners in their child's education.
Parents, get educated, empowered and mobilized to hold our leaders accountable for ensuring every child has access to a high-quality public education! Learn more and sign up for our free newsletter at http://www.familiesthatcan.org!
The 21st Annual California Charter Schools Conference, held March 3-6, 2014 in San Jose, was host to nearly 3,000 charter leaders, supporters, advocates and parents. This year's conference theme was "Achievement through Innovation." Cultivating innovation and sharing best practices are vital to a movement rich in diversity and committed to accountability.
