Biden Education Department Declares War on Charter Schools

School Kids

( – According to a worthwhile read now running in the conservative National Review, President Joe Biden’s federal Department of Education has declared war on charter schools, an alternative to traditional public school systems. Every poll we’ve seen for years shows that conservatives support charter schools.

As outlined in “The Biden Administration Declares War on Charter Schools” by Robert Maranto:

“The decades-long honeymoon between Democrats and charter schools was too good to last…

“[N]ow, with Democrats going woke and a new president in town, the U.S. Department of Education has declared war on charter schools, using obscure bureaucratic rulemaking to kill the federal charter-school program without having to explain why.” [emphasis added]

And here’s the core of what’s happening:

“On March 11, a Friday when media attention was focused on Ukraine and the Senate’s Thursday-night passage of the $1.5 trillion bill to fund federal-government agencies for the rest of the fiscal year, the Biden administration’s Office of Elementary and Secondary Education issued 13 pages of rules designed to cut off charter schools from federal support, and that will likely serve as a model for state regulations limiting charters.” [emphasis added]

If you believe in charter schools and believe your federal (and state) tax dollars should be supporting those schools, we encourage you to read the entirety of Robert Maranto’s thoughtful piece. You can do so by clicking HERE.
