Washington State Legislators -

I am calling on you today to keep local, public charter schools open. This important decision rests in your hands. Across the state parents, teachers, students and families just like me are coming together across the state to stand up for the more than 1,100 kids that currently attend these public schools.

As you know, the Washington State Supreme Court recently released a devastating ruling that steamrolled the will of voters by forcing voter-approved public charter schools to close.  Now we are looking to you to be a hero and keep these schools open. Their fate rests in your hands.

I’m calling on you to act now and provide the resources to keep WA public charter schools open.

Washington’s public charter schools are helping to close the education equity gap. Nearly two-thirds of students in public charter schools are from low-income families and almost 70% are students of color.  Allowing public charter schools to close down will disproportionately affect families who turned to charters because their child’s needs were not being met.

Please don’t let a flawed decision shut the door on our children's bright futures. Act now and ensure that our public charter schools remain open and innovative.
