Charter schools are the fastest growing form of public school choice in the United States. Over the past five years, student enrollment in charter schools has grown by over 70 percent. In 42 states and the District of Columbia, approximately 2.7 million students now attend public charter schools – more than five percent of the total number of American students enrolled in public schools.
These numbers prove that our movement is growing. But the faces behind the numbers really bring our work to life. We’ve put together a short video entitled “The Power of Charters” that shines a spotlight on the students, teachers, parents, and administrators who make up the charter school movement. We invite you to watch, share with your friends, and join in the celebration of the #PowerOfCharters!
