The Truth About Charter Schools
Charters provide a free education and, like other public schools, cannot discriminate by race, gender, religion or disability.
1. Charter schools are publicly funded schools that are created and operated by organizations other than local school districts.
2. A school's charter is reviewed regularly, typically every three to five years, by the charter school organization.
3. Charter schools are classified as public schools by the U.S Department of Education. They receive public money, offer a free education and are held to the same nondiscrimination standards as traditional public schools.
4. Note that charter schools are different from other school choice programs such as vouchers and magnet schools.
