NAACP calls for moratorium on charter expansion

The NAACP, the nation’s oldest and largest nonpartisan civil rights organization, has adopted a resolution calling for a moratorium on the expansion of charter schools until concerns identified in its resolution are addressed. The moratorium call extends to “at least such time as: (1) charter schools are subject to the same transparency and accountability standards as public schools; (2) public funds are not diverted to charter schools at the expense of the public school system; (3) charter schools cease expelling students that public schools have a duty to educate; and (4) charter schools cease to perpetuate de facto segregation of the highest performing children from those whose aspirations may be high but whose talents are not yet as obvious.”
