NPE and Schott Issue a 50 State Report Card on School Privatization

Published by

This morning the Network for Public Education and the Schott Foundation released  Grading the States: A Report Card on Our Nation’s Commitment to Public Schools, a report that evaluates the extent to which the 50 states and the District of Columbia are funneling public money away from community public schools to privately run charter and voucher schools. The report also measures the consequences of school privatization on students’ civil rights and taxpayers’ rights to know how their dollars are spent.

You can find the report and see where your state stands here.

Grading the States is the first in-depth nonpartisan report card to measure each state’s commitment to democratically governed public schools. It also includes state by state measurement of whether each state’s charter schools and voucher-funded private schools protect student civil rights and guard taxpayers from fraud and the misuse of public funds.

If you scroll down the page you find here you will also see our interactive map.
