Who We Are
The National Alliance for Public Charter Schools believes that all families deserve high-quality public school options. Charter schools are independent public schools providing families with a new set of public school options. Each of these schools is developed to be a partnership between parents, teachers, and students.
Increasingly, when given the option, parents are choosing to enroll their children in charter schools. In fact, the demand for charter schools is far outpacing the supply in most communities. What began as a small movement in a couple of states has grown to become a major force in education reform. Through advocacy, research, and community outreach, the National Alliance works to grow the number of high-quality charter schools available to all families, especially those who do not have access to high-quality public schools.
