My English is not perfect, but I have been trying hard to learn so I can support my kids that are English Language Learners (ELL) and go to a charter school.
Because my children attend a charter school in Indianapolis, I am advocating for schools like the one they attend to be funded fairly. Children in public charter schools in Indianapolis receive nearly $7,000 less per student than nearby district-run schools. That funding gap per child for charter schools statewide is nearly $4,000.
I would like our lawmakers to close the gap in funding for charter schools. The most important thing about a school is not the school type, but that families feel safe and see their kids do good –and they need adequate funding to do that.
You can join me in asking our lawmakers to close the funding gap for charter schools by sending an email today on this page.
