Getting Public Education Right in Washington


Help open great public schools that deliver on the promise of closing historic opportunity gaps, and give all students an equal opportunity to succeed in college, leadership and life.

In 2015, Washington ranked 41st in the nation in high school graduation rates for low-income students.

In 2014, MSP outcomes in middle school reading, math, and science showed a pronounced gap between low income students and their more affluent peers. When low-income students fail, we all fail.


41% of 8th graders from low-income families failed reading vs. 19% of non-low-income.

This is where public charter schools can make the biggest difference.

A charter school gives teachers and principals more flexibility to personalize teaching methods and curriculum to improve student learning in exchange for greater accountability. 

Public charter schools are public schools, open to all students, and free to attend.
