WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) today co-sponsored U.S. Senator Tim Scott’s (R-SC) resolution honoring the 22nd annual National Charter Schools Week.
“After spending 40 years recruiting students from high schools all over the country, I know the difference a quality education can make in a young person’s life. I’ve seen public charter schools give parents a valuable option for students in Alabama and across the country,” said Sen. Tuberville.“Charter schools give educators more flexibility to teach in ways that best fit students’ unique needs, and studies show charter schools help close the achievement gap for our most at-risk students. I’m grateful for the educators and administrators who have helped make charter schools available to students and parents, and look forward to their continued success in educating America’s next generation of leaders.”
Nationally, 44 states and the District of Columbia have public charter schools, with more than 7,500 schools serving approximately 3.3 million students.
