WATCH: The 74 Breaks Down Charter Schools

Students, families, and teachers from around the country are standing up for better education policy during National School Choice Week.

Nearly seven million people across all 50 states are advocating for policies that will put students first, and improve classrooms nationwide.

In the Empire State, New York City continues to make strides in the school choice movement by expanding access to charter schools. But the city still has a long way to go, as 47,800 students remain on charter waitlists.

The 74 has created the above video to answer your most pressing questions on charter schools and explain their importance in the school choice movement.

You can also check out the organization’s coverage on other important school choice topics including school tax credit scholarships and school vouchers.
