Tell your California representative to support AB 1478

Should charters have open meetings? Should their data and information be readily available to the public? Should operators of non-profit charters be able to profit from their schools?

If you your answers to these questions are Yes, Yes, and No. Then join in demanding charter transparency and accountability. With AB 1478 we have a legislative opportunity to give charter supporters the transparency and accountability that they say in public they support, but still ask the California Charter Schools Association to spend millions of dollars to oppose.

Click here to write to your representative and let them know you support AB 1478.

The taxpayers of California deserve transparency regarding how their tax dollars are spent by charter schools. I am tired of charter school scandals. California’s children and taxpayers deserve better. Please support AB 1478.

If you are not in California, please share this with your California friends.

  1. Your logic transfers effectively to the larger national picture. Writing letters, emails, postcards and tweets to any and all legislators, to DeVos at the Dept. of Education, and to local and state school board members repeating the basic argument that “[T]axpayers…deserve transparency regarding how their tax dollars are spent by charter schools. I am tired of charter school scandals. [Our nation’s] children and taxpayers deserve better” might work very well across the country.
