CCSA Applauds Governor Newsom's Bold Vision for California's Public Schools

SACRAMENTO, CA - The California Charter Schools Association (CCSA) today released the following statement from President and CEO Myrna Castrejón in response to Governor Gavin Newsom's first State of the State speech:

"Today, Governor Newsom laid out a bold vision for California's public schools, one that fulfills the promise of public education through greater transparency and accountability for all public schools. We look forward to working with newly appointed State Board President Linda Darling-Hammond and welcome the Governor's call for an honest conversation about how we can all work together - labor, charter, and districts alike - to fund our public schools, support our teachers and put kids first."

About California's Charter Schools
California's charter schools are public schools built to put the needs of students first. Public, free, and open to all, charter schools are a valuable part of our public education system. They offer a different approach -- one that is as unique as the kids they serve, one that puts kids above bureaucracy, and one that gives passionate teachers the flexibility to create dynamic lesson plans tailored to kids' individual needs. As a result, charter schools send more kids to college and are preparing more kids for the jobs of tomorrow.
