Why Choose a Charter School?

A 2022 study conducted by Harris Poll surveyed 5,000 parents in the U.S. indicated parents want to have a say in where their children attend school. Since the pandemic, parents have become more involved in their children’s education. In 2021, 240,000 students were newly enrolled in public charter schools.

In this episode, we listen to a chat with the CEO of Rainer Valley Leadership Academy (RVLA) in Seattle, Washington, Baionne Coleman, and RVLA parent, Nicole Franklin on why some families choose charter schools. We covered the topics of academic rigor, sense of community, and a culturally affirming environment.
