Charter schools to get 100% of funds as public schools face cuts, say education advocates
New York’s public school districts must fully fund charter schools in the upcoming school year, according to a nonprofit public education advocacy organization.
The Alliance for Quality Education, based in Albany, says that even as public schools face 20% cuts in state aid, they must pay 100% of tuition for charters. Charter schools enroll 6% of students statewide.
