Charter Schools

When thinking about your childs education have you ever considered a charter school? Or are you even aware of what a charter school is? What is the difference between public schools, magnet schools, and charter schools? In our recent post we talked about magnet schools. Now I would just like to point out a few benefits of charter schools.

  • All students have opportunities for quality education
  • Parents and students are offered another choice for public education
  • Teachers and administrators are given room to be creative in helping students learn
  • Charter schools have to be accountable for their performance
  • Teachers are allowed to try innovative teaching methods
  • Involvement by parents and the community in education are encouraged
  • Smaller school and class size, providing lower student/teacher ratios
  • Teachers choose to work at charter schools so they are committed to the school’s mission
