60 Years Later: Brown v. Board of Education

  • Print

May 16, 2014 Saturday, May 17, 2014 marks the 60th anniversary of the Supreme Court's Brown v. Board of Education decision striking down "separate but equal" segregation in public education. Decades later, we have seen great strides and even setbacks in education.

In California, charter public schools are tuition free, serve all students, and are getting amazing academic results. Charter schools provide school choice options for parents and can meet the various needs of students. And choice is a powerful tool for families seeking educational equity and equal access to quality education for their children.

The demand for charter schools just gets stronger in California. CCSA is working hard each day with our partner schools and community organizations to ensure that no barrier prevents us from making good on our promise to provide a high quality charter public school education to all students across the state.
