Association of American Educators Launches New Website for Charter School Community in Conjunction with National Charter Schools Week


Alexandria, VA– The Association of American Educators (AAE), the largest national non-union teachers' organization, today launched a new website for public charter school stakeholders: www.AAECharters.org to kick off National Charter Schools Week. The new website is geared toward charter school administrators, leaders, teachers, supporters, and associations searching for timely updates and research on issues affecting the public charter school community.

"We are thrilled to launch the interactive website – www.AAECharters.org," said AAE Executive Director Gary Beckner. "This new tool allows our association to connect with the charter school community on a whole new level."

The website includes information about AAE membership and benefits for individual teachers and charter school associations, charter-specific scholarships and grants, as well as original research on preventing charter school unionization and creating a culture of best practices and professionalism in the charter school environment. The site also encourages educators and charter leaders to comment and collaborate via a timely blog covering charter school issues and topics.

As part of AAE's continued outreach to the charter school community, the website will include information for schools and associations seeking to partner with AAE for charter school employee services. Charter school associations already partnered with AAE, including organizations in Florida, Georgia, Indiana, New Jersey, and Utah, will have their own pages designed to inform members about important charter news in their respective states.

"As a vocal supporter of charter schools, AAE is committed to working hand-in-hand with the nation's charter stakeholders to ensure all educators have the tools they need to provide students with the best possible education," stated Beckner. "This new website will be an invaluable tool for reference and collaboration within the growing charter school community."

AAECharters.org will be regularly updated with new postings and resources. For more information, visit www.AAECharters.org.
