As the crowd of charter school leaders and supporters gathered at the Capitol last week, we couldn’t help but feel an enormous sense of pride to stand up for the communities and students we serve.
MAPSA shared that there is still a funding gap between public charter schools and traditional public in the Governor’s proposed budget.
While lawmakers vote on how much charter school students are worth, it’s up to us to speak up for the students in our classrooms. As staff, school leaders and advocates who look out for those kids – now is the time to demand equitable funding for charter students. It only takes 60 seconds to send a pre-composed email to your lawmakers – be the voice that makes your lawmaker listen.
