Protect Our Charter Schools
The U.S. House Appropriations Committee advanced a bill that would have cut CSP funding by $40 million. This came on the heels of an effort by the U.S. Department of Education to make it more difficult for charter schools to access CSP funds – which jeopardized their ability to open, replicate, and expand. To combat this direct attack on charter schools, the National Alliance sprang into action with a robust campaign to educate policymakers, generate high-profile earned media coverage and use our social media platforms and influence to activists across the nation. Our advocacy campaigns over the past two years netted more than 50,000 emails to members of Congress and 20,000 comment letters to the Department of Education.
