What Exactly is a Charter School?

From The Beacon Center of Tennessee:

Charter schools are public schools. They’re free to attend, as in no tuition. They’re non-religious, non-profit, and there’s no admissions tests or interviews – charter schools are open to anyone who’s eligible for public education. Charters have to meet the same state testing requirements as zoned public schools, and their accountability requirements are even higher. 

Charter schools were created to help expand and improve public education. They have the flexibility to innovate and experiment. And they work! Growth scores for charters outperformed traditional public schools by nearly double. Most importantly, charter schools give parents and students more public options to receive a life-changing, high-quality education.
