While too many Kentucky’s children languish in under-performing schools, students in 42 states around the country now have the additional school choice of charter schools to expand their educational options.
In fact, a recent Air Force Times news article reports that you can even find charter schools on some of the nation’s major military installations. Here is the breakdown:
* Belle Chasse Academy – Naval Air Station/Joint Reserve Base New Orleans
* Sonoran Science Academy – Davis-Monthan AFB Arizona
*Wheatland Charter Academy – Beale AFB, California
* Sigsbee Charter School – Naval Air Station Key West, Florida
* Imagine Andrews Public Charter School – Joint Base Andrews, Maryland
* Jacksonville Lighthouse Charter School: Flightline Upper Academy – Little Rock AFB, Arkansas
* Manzanita Public Charter School – Vandenberg AFB, California
So, while even military kids, elsewhere, benefit from charters, our here-at-home students in Kentucky are left out in the cold.
