The Charter Schools Program provides the nation’s K-12 education system with start-up funding for mission-driven schools that operate with more flexibility, creativity, and innovation than “frozen-pond” district schools. Many diverse organizations have been inspired to open charters with the objectives of approaching education differently and/or providing historically-underserved students with educational opportunities. CSP provides funding for them to launch that mission.
