National Association of Charter School Authorizers Issues Statement on Presidential Election

Greg Richmond, president and CEO of the National Association of Charter School Authorizers, issued the following statement today on the results of the presidential election:

“Like every president for the past twenty years, President Obama has been a supporter of charter schools. We look forward to continuing to work closely with the administration and Secretary Duncan to strengthen public charter schools as part of an overall plan to revitalize American education. With more than two million students, charters have grown into a powerful and innovative tuition-free choice for families. Let’s now get to work in expanding the high-quality public school choices that will brighten the futures of children across the country.”
