By now, you’ve probably heard about the “Elimination of Charter Schools” initiative. A small, anti-charter group is hoping to gather more than 360,000 signatures to put this initiative on the ballot in November, with the goal of closing every charter school in California.
While we don’t believe this effort will succeed, especially given the tremendous support for charters and surging numbers of students on charter school wait lists across the state, we do think it’s a great opportunity for you – as a charter school parent, educator or supporter – to speak out and let your elected officials know that no one should try to take away students’ right to a great public education.
Please take one minute to sign this petition.
All you need to do is declare your support for charter schools and urge public officials to protect them.
Thank you for your advocacy on behalf of the California charter school community.
