Reform Matters: October 13, 2016
posted by: Alana | October 14, 2016, 05:18 PM   

This Saturday, the NAACP Board of Directors is meeting to vote on a resolution proposing a moratorium on new public charter schools. The proposed resolution would ultimately reduce educational opportunities for African-American students, many of whom come from low-income families.

The National Alliance for Public Charter Schools is requesting charter school advocates call the NAACP and let them know that these schools are working for African-American students in our country. Call (202) 759-6227 now to be connected to the NAACP.

For many urban families, charter schools are making it possible to do what affluent families have long been able to do: send their child to a successful school.
We need to act now to protect charter schools! Call (202) 759-6227 and ask the NAACP to vote against a moratorium on charter schools!
