Charter Schools Learn New Ways of Learning

Record #:
Charter schools, publicly funded but privately organized and operated, began operating in North Carolina in 1997. In the fall of 2001, about 17,000 students will enroll in one of the state's 100 schools that are chartered by North Carolina General Assembly legislation. Advocates feel the schools offer choices in education, but legislators are waiting for the state report on charter schools, due in January 2002, before adding more schools.
