CCSA Celebrates 20th Anniversary of Charter Schools with Statewide Events

September 19, 2012

Of his success, the great industrialist Henry Ford once said that "Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success." The words truly seem to mirror the charter schools movement in California over the past 20 years. It was in September 1992 when Governor Pete Wilson signed the Charter Schools Act. When the law went into effect the following January, there were only 33 charters in California. Currently, we are close to 1,000. But the growth hasn't been just in numbers, it has been in the quality and choice that charter schools have given families. Charter schools have reinvented public education!

Over the next several weeks, CCSA will be participating in a series of local events in cities like San Diego, Oakland, San Jose, Fresno, Butte and Chico, which will celebrate the contributions charters have made to education, and engage charter school supporters to collectively raise awareness on the issues that impact us all. For more information, and to find out when and where we will be holding 20th Anniversary celebrations, check out the Events page on our 20th Anniversary website.
