This year's Charter School Advocacy Day at the Capitol in Albany was a huge success. Thousands of charter families and educators from across New York State took part in a record number of legislative visits – more than 90! – and lawmakers from both sides of the aisle came out to show their support.
We made sure legislators understood the critical need for fair funding since charter kids from NYC to Buffalo still face a huge funding disparity compared to district school kids. But the day was also a celebration of how far the charter movement has come now that more than 120,000 kids attend charters statewide.
The Northeast Charter Schools Network thanks our partners at the NYC Charter School Center for a great event.
