2016 Presidential Election: Charter School Coverage

As you know, NACSA is a non-partisan organization. Coming into a Presidential election year, this means we won’t take a position on a candidate or party. However, because we are the nation’s only organization that represents charter school authorizers, we closely monitor claims made by candidates about charter schools and authorizing. We have an obligation to speak up about our shared work, especially when it is misunderstood or misrepresented on this large a stage.
