These proposed charter school expansions will reduce the LRSD student population by thousands and cause the closure of numerous LRSD schools. Expanding charters that are far more segregated by race, income and need than LRSD will further divide our community.
Since our founding in 1963, the Arkansas Public Policy Panel has worked to desegregate our schools and to make sure EVERY student has a high quality opportunity to learn. Please join us in saying NO to separate and unequal again. Join us in standing up for a high quality public education system that represents our full community and meets the needs of ALL children.
