This historic action sparked a movement that now spans 44 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Guam. There are currently more than 7,400 public charter schools providing individualized education and learning opportunities to more than 3 million students and their families throughout our Nation. During National Charter School Week, we recognize the contributions of public charter school leaders, teachers, students, and parents and reaffirm our commitment to further expand access to public charter schools and all high-quality education opportunities throughout our Nation. Every American family should have the right to choose the learning environment that works best for their child. Despite this, for decades the idea that all children can thrive under a one-size-fits-all approach to learning has defined American education. This antiquated and monolithic model leaves far too many of our Nation’s young people trapped in a learning environment that does not meet their individual needs. Public charter schools ensure individual choice and empower students to fulfil their potential. These important educational options also disproportionately serve low-income students and students of color, and have a proven track record of serving these children better than neighboring public schools. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with PRESDOC0 Although public charter school enrollment has increased at least eightfold in the past 18 years, there are currently more than 1 million students still on waitlists throughout the country. My Administration remains committed to ensuring these children are able to receive the best education possible by expanding access to alternative education options. Since my first day in office, I have championed school choice and education freedom for every American student, acknowledging that a family’s zip code or socioeconomic status should not determine a child’s future. My Administration has invested nearly $1.5 billion in the development of public charter schools, while also taking action to restore local control over education and expand access to high-quality education opportunities. Together, we are empowering students and families to be able to access learning environments that meet their unique needs. This week, public charter schools, families, and supporters will share inspirational stories of success, recognize leaders in the charter sector, and build awareness of the unique public charter school model that offers flexibility to try different instructional methods while being accountable for student achievement and outcomes. During National Charter Schools Week, and every week, let us celebrate the extraordinary work of public charter schools in advancing education freedom, excellence, and innovative approaches to learning. By continuing to support public charter schools and students, we will give power back to families and build a brighter future for all Americans.

                Proclamation 10030 of May 8, 2020

                
National Charter Schools Week, 2020

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Nearly 30 years ago, in a small town in southeast 
                Minnesota, freedom-loving Americans on both sides of 
                the political aisle opened the doors to our Nation's 
                first public charter school, enabling families to more 
                effectively choose the best learning environment for 
                their child. This historic action sparked a movement 
                that now spans 44 States, the District of Columbia, 
                Puerto Rico, and Guam. There are currently more than 
                7,400 public charter schools providing individualized 
                education and learning opportunities to more than 3 
                million students and their families throughout our 
                Nation. During National Charter School Week, we 
                recognize the contributions of public charter school 
                leaders, teachers, students, and parents and reaffirm 
                our commitment to further expand access to public 
                charter schools and all high-quality education 
                opportunities throughout our Nation.

                Every American family should have the right to choose 
                the learning environment that works best for their 
                child. Despite this, for decades the idea that all 
                children can thrive under a one-size-fits-all approach 
                to learning has defined American education. This 
                antiquated and monolithic model leaves far too many of 
                our Nation's young people trapped in a learning 
                environment that does not meet their individual needs. 
                Public charter schools ensure individual choice and 
                empower students to fulfil their potential. These 
                important educational options also disproportionately 
                serve low-income students and students of color, and 
                have a proven track record of serving these children 
                better than neighboring public schools.

                Although public charter school enrollment has increased 
                at least eightfold in the past 18 years, there are 
                currently more than 1 million students still on 
                waitlists throughout the country. My Administration 
                remains committed to ensuring these children are able 
                to receive the best education possible by expanding 
                access to alternative education options. Since my first 
                day in office, I have championed school choice and 
                education freedom for every American student, 
                acknowledging that a family's zip code or socioeconomic 
                status should not determine a child's future. My 
                Administration has invested nearly $1.5 billion in the 
                development of public charter schools, while also 
                taking action to restore local control over education 
                and expand access to high-quality education 
                opportunities. Together, we are empowering students and 
                families to be able to access learning environments 
                that meet their unique needs.

                This week, public charter schools, families, and 
                supporters will share inspirational stories of success, 
                recognize leaders in the charter sector, and build 
                awareness of the unique public charter school model 
                that offers flexibility to try different instructional 
                methods while being accountable for student achievement 
                and outcomes. During National Charter Schools Week, and 
                every week, let us celebrate the extraordinary work of 
                public charter schools in advancing education freedom, 
                excellence, and innovative approaches to learning. By 
                continuing to support public charter schools and 
                students, we will give power back to families and build 
                a brighter future for all Americans.
