A Growing Movement: Americas Largest Charter School Communities, Eighth Edition

A Growing Movement: Americas Largest Charter School Communities, Eighth Edition

December 10, 2013

The latest data on public charter school enrollment demonstrate once again that public charter schools are the fastest-growing sector of public education in the United States. Over the past five years, student enrollment in public charter schools has grown by 80 percent. In 42 states and the District of Columbia, more than 2.3 million students almost 5 percent of the total number enrolled in public schools now attend charter schools. In seven school districts, more than 30 percent of students attend charter schools. In 135 districts, at least 10 percent of students attend public charter schools. Thirteen school districts saw increases in charter school enrollment ranging from nearly 20 to almost 60 percent in a single year. Because of their track record of success and ability to meet the unique needs of students, parents are increasingly choosing public charter schools in communities throughout the country. Demand for public charter schools is at an all-time high.
