It is no new news that some people out there are against charter school movement. It is no surprise that many charter school organizations are attacked by those who are opposing the change and advancement.
After the first charter school law passed in Minnesota in 1991, there are now more than 92 thousand charter schools serving more than 1.6 million students in 40 of the 50 states. Charter schools continue to close the achievement gap and decrease the dropout rates in economically disadvantages and under-served areas in the nation. Check out National Alliance for Public Charter School‘s website for more data on public charter schools. http://www.publiccharters.org
Magnolia schools are no different. With so many success stories and a track record of achievements, they get their fair share from the upset minority who loves to keep the things the way they presently are for personal, political and economic reasons. It is very much clear in Magnolia’s track record of history for the past ten years that, Magnolia schools do what is best for students and parents. Those attackers are trying to hijack your success stories by foolishly trying to diminish your reputation with ridiculous attempts to associate you with so-called Gulen charter schools.
Check the recent eye-opening movie Waiting for Superman http://www.waitingforsuperman.com/ by Davis Guggenheim. This documentary successfully shows that charter schools offer viable options and alternatives to the status quo in which families and students have been disserviced for a long time.
