Chris Geden, Community Outreach Director, Children’s Education Alliance of Missouri
The Children’s Education Alliance of Missouri supports informed school choice. We feel strongly that charter schools not only allow parents to choose where their child goes to school, but forces the traditional public schools to reform, or face losing students. There is increasing demand around Missouri and the rest of the nation for high performing schools. Fortunately for parents and students, in many cases, the options parents are turning to are charter schools. But you don’t have to take my word for it, The National Alliance for Public Charter Schools completed this report called Charter Demographics Report that paints a very vivid picture of the demand for and success of charter schools in America.
