Are you looking for more tools and resources to share fast facts about charter schools? We highlighted some resources in a blog post earlier this week, but we have a new one today: a short but helpful video from the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools. The video reinforces the basic facts about charters: They’re public. Free. And open to all.
Here are some more data points as the 2023-24 school year launches:
- More than 3.7 million students attend public charter schools nationwide. In North Carolina, 140,000 students attend charter schools
- Across the country, around 7,800 public charter schools serve students. In North Carolina, 211 public charter schools (including two virtual charter schools) are operating for the 2023-24 school year.
