Arizona charter schools are public schools. Yet, many of these taxpayer-funded schools are allowed to operate in secrecy due to minimal regulations and oversight. The ACLU of Arizona's Demand to Learn campaign is focused on eliminating practices that disproportionately push children out of the classroom and wants to hold all Arizona public schools, district and charter, accountable to the communities they serve.
A charter school reform bill, Senate Bill 1394, was introduced at Arizona Legislature but it does not do nearly enough to bring transparency to these taxpayer-funded schools. Many loopholes exist in the bill that must be solved before the bill moves forward. We believe it is crucial that teachers, students, and parents are brought to the table to discuss charter reform.
