Charter School Enrollment Tops 3 Million Students

According to an article published by Education Week (here), estimates of the total number of students enrolled in charter schools has surpassed 3 million.

More than 6,900 schools support the education of around 3.1 million students.  This means charter enrollment has nearly tripled in the last 10 years.

Even with this significant growth, it only represents a small fraction (around 5%) of the overall K-12 public school enrollment nationwide.

“TEQlease is a good company to work with,” said Goldie Burge, Superintendent of Country Gardens Charter School.  “Jamell Dorton and the rest of the TEF team are very knowledgeable. They were able to help us acquire the chemistry lab equipment in a timely manner, and they kept us informed every step of the way. “
