The Charter School Idea

“There is nothing so powerful as an idea whose time has come…”

Charter schools are an idea that is transforming public education by harnessing the powerful dynamics of choice, competition, and accountability. As with any powerful idea, there is an underlying philosophy that defines it…

Choice and competition are necessary to force the educational system to change and improve itself over time.
*Schools should be free and open to all students regardless of where they live or their economic status.
*The state should fund students, not institutions.
Parents should be empowered to choose the schools that best meets the needs of their children and the funding should follow.

 

We believe chartering is a powerful idea… and its time has come. To us, chartering represents an opportunity for people to create, innovate and excel.
