Continued Rapid Growth Of Charter Schools in California

Charter GrowthCalifornia continues to be at the forefront of the Charter Movement since 1992 when it became the 2nd state after Minnesota to legally allow charter schools. This year there were 81 new charters that opened in the state of California, and 33 of those were in Los Angeles County alone.

This is the largest one-year increase since its inception twenty years ago.

It is estimated that about one in SIX students attend charter schools within the LAUSD!
