Urgent: Sign This Petition to Clean Up the Federal Charter Schools Program

For the first time since the federal Charter Schools Program was established in 1994, the U.S. Department of Education is setting forth meaningful regulations to bring greater transparency and stop waste and fraud.

These rules will make a tremendous difference in stopping the spread of charters run for profit and ensuring that charters that increase segregation and cause public school closures will not be funded.

Click below to sign our petition of support.

The charter lobby is fighting these changes tooth and nail with a campaign of disinformation urging the charter community to write comments to kill the new regulations.

In the coming days, you will receive additional emails from us asking you to step up and do your part.

For now, just click and sign. Let’s make sure charters are responsible to communities, not profiteers.
