At MAPSA, we believe that public schools no longer fit in a one-size-fits all box - learning can happen any time, any place, and at any pace. We believe that recognizing the differences and benefits of diversified learning environments will only accelerate innovation - and charter schools across the state are providing those opportunities for students. Unfortunately, they aren't getting funded fairly for their work.
Lawmakers like State Senator Curtis Hertel firmly believe that charter schools do not deserve equal funding as traditional public schools, and what's worse - they are telling fellow lawmakers to vote NO on equitable funding, If we don't stand together as a unified body against these opponents, charter school students will continue to recieve less funding, despite the fact that they are still held to the same education standards.
