Who We Are
The National Alliance for Public Charter Schools believes all families deserve access to a high-quality public school. Charter schools are innovative public schools that operate independently from the local school district. Each of these schools is developed to be a partnership between parents, teachers, and students.
When given the option, many 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 few states has grown to become a major force in public education across the country. Through advocacy, research, and strategic communications, 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.
