CCSA Responds to Federal Government's Proposed FY18 Budget
May 23, 2017
We appreciate the Administration's proposed increased investment in the Charter Schools Program (CSP) by $158 million, critical funding needed to grow and replicate high quality charter schools to meet the needs of families seeking the charter school option. However, we acknowledge that public schools are impacted by programs outside of the CSP, like nutrition assistance to health to housing.
Sustaining charter schools and all public schools requires great investments at all levels. We urge the federal government to consider the implications of the budget overall for our families and communities. Specifically, we call on Congress to sustain and increase its overall investment in public education funding to meet the needs of all public school students, including charter and district school students.
