Just a reminder of the NAACP’s position on Charter Schools. Good charter schools only serve only a small percentage of children, they are proving to be a tool for segregation, and they divert needed funds from public schools. Today’s charter school movement is far removed from the original notion that they could be a source of innovation.
“The NAACP rejects the emphasis on charter schools as the vanguard approach for the education of children, instead of focusing attention, funding, and policy advocacy on improving existing, low performing public schools and will work through local, state and federal legislative processes to ensure that all public schools are provided the necessary funding, support and autonomy necessary to educate all students.”
The NAACP fully supports public schools.
