Charter School Enrollment Increases

A report from the National Alliance of Public Charter Schools shows that charter school enrollment in the United States has increased by 14% from last year, meaning there are 2.9 million children currently in charter school attendance alone. The states that have the largest number of charter schools that opened in the 2014-15 school year are California, Florida and Texas. Today almost 6% of children are attending charter schools. In the next few years the percentage is expected to rise to 10%.

“We are not surprised parents are choosing charter schools for their child’s education,” Nina Rees, president and CEO of NAPCS, said in a statement. “The growth in charter school enrollment shows parents’ demand for high-quality educational options. We are optimistic that the number of public charter schools will continue to grow to serve even more students and families.” – Education News
