PUBLIC SCHOOLS AS PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS.
Our school districts must be committed to providing all children regardless of zip code the opportunity to attend a quality public school in their community.
- All Learners. Our public school system must be able to teach all students regardless of needs or disabilities, language barriers, homelessness, poverty, or any other barrier to learning.
- Charter Accountability. Traditional district and charter schools should work together to ensure a coordinated approach that serves all children. Charter schools should serve as models of innovation, not a means to privatize the district. Charter schools should be open to and provide equal access for all students and have consistent standards for accountability and transparency as neighborhood schools.
