Rally for Public Charter Schools
Date: February 19, 2020
Action Meeting Time: 3 pm
Debate Start Time: 7 pm
Freedom Coalition for Charter Schools
A plan of action will be designed to build awareness of and support for public charter schools, specifically those led by people of color. As such, The Coalition has agreed to embark on a set of actions that bring much-needed attention to two specific messages:
Supporting charter schools are supporting the self-determination of Black and Brown people, particularly those who serve as school leaders and control every aspect of operating a school, as well as, parents who actively and intentionally choose these schools to educate their children.
Elected officials need to understand that Black and Brown parents want, value, and choose public charter schools to successfully secure a quality education for their children. School choice is an inalienable right for everyone.
We will set the conversation straight about the growing impact charter schools are having in communities across the country.
