CT Charter Association: Proposed Moratorium a Slap in the Face
New Haven, CT – The state’s charter school association is vowing to fight the General Assembly Education Committee’s proposal to place a two-year moratorium on new charter schools.
Northeast Charter Schools Network Connecticut State Director Jeremiah Grace said:
“This is a slap in the face to the more than 3,600 children waiting to attend public charter schools. A two-year moratorium would strand families that have no other option for their kids.
“Education is the gateway to freedom. Thousands of parents feel abandoned because their schools aren’t closing the achievement gap, and we need to work with them to find a solution. When parents ask for a public charter school in their community, the state should commend them and answer the call, not dismiss them and the future of their children.”
About the Northeast Charter Schools Network: The Northeast Charter Schools Network is a regional advocacy organization for the more than 250 charter schools in Connecticut and New York. Its mission is to support and expand high quality charter schools in the region.
