That’s the number of students waiting to enroll in New York City charter schools right now. At PublicSchoolOptions.org, we know that students shouldn’t have to wait for a great education that meets their needs. We cannot afford to push off today’s education problems on future generations.
The 25,000 parents that attended the “Path to Possible” rally in NYC one week ago today stand with PSO in the fight to expand educational options for students across the country. Their goal: to double the number of NYC students attending charter schools by 2020. If they are successful, roughly 200,000 students will have made the choice to learn in a way that unlocks their full potential.
We have hope this fall that Mayor de Blasio and legislators across all 50 states will trust the voices of these parents. Our children cannot wait.
