Dear Hillary: Get Your Facts Straight About Charter Schools

Nina Rees, president and CEO of the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools, released a statement in response Secretary Hillary Clinton’s comments about charter schools at a South Carolina townhall meeting on November 7. From the statement:
“We appreciate Secretary Clinton’s decades-long support for charter public schools. In fact, charter schools have had strong bipartisan support since the Clinton administration. That being said, we do take issue with Secretary Clinton’s overgeneralizing of charter schools not serving these so-called “hardest-to-teach” students, particularly when the facts are so strong to the contrary. 
The National Alliance welcomes a dialogue about our nation’s public education system, the role that charter public schools play in improving public education, and providing parents with quality public school options.”
