The National Alliance for Public Charter Schools released a report entitled “The Truth About Charters” this week. The report addresses common myths and misunderstandings that surround public charter schools. According to the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools’ website:
While charter schools enjoy tremendous bipartisan support among policymakers and the general public, they also have some vocal critics who perpetuate a number of myths about charter schools. Through our series, the Truth About Charters, we will lay out some of these myths and provide responses based on facts and independent research findings.
In addition, the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools’ website will feature one myth per week for the next four weeks. This week’s topic addresses the myth that, “Charter schools are not public schools.”
