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.”

The National Association of Charter School Authorizers (NACSA) is committed to advancing excellence and accountability in the charter school sector and to increasing the number of high-quality charter schools across the nation. To accomplish this mission, NACSA works to improve the policies and practices of authorizers—the organizations designated to approve, monitor, renew, and, if necessary, close charter schools. NACSA provides training, consulting, and policy guidance to authorizers. It also advocates for laws and policies that raise the bar for excellence among authorizers and the schools they charter.
