“I chose a public charter school because I value education. As a product of a traditional public school, I recognize that the traditional public school model was sufficient; however, I wanted more for my children. I’ve found that in the public charter sector.” – Will Hegwood, Parent of Two Public Charter School Students
Since 2011, charter enrollment has grown in parallel to higher enrollment at traditional public schools
