It’s National Charter Schools Week, and we’re celebrating how public charter schools are meeting the unique needs of individual students, families and communities. But not all charter schools are the same; these schools are made for specific purposes to address local needs. The American Enterprise Institute’s report Measuring Diversity in Charter School Offerings classifies 13 different types of specialized charter schools.
Check out some of our favorite blog posts from the week below, and visit ExcelinEd.org to learn how your state can provide all families with effective public school options that best meet the needs of their children.
