Charter Schools Gain Momentum in San Joaquin County

Charter Schools Gain Momentum in San Joaquin County

Year after year, we see more parents demanding high quality school choice options for their children. Current enrollment numbers tell us that an estimated 547,800 students are enrolled in charter public schools across the state for the 2014-15 school year. Charter enrollment grew by an estimated 33,525 increase this year. This growth pattern isn’t limited to student enrollment in existing charter schools, in fact there are 87 new charter schools that opened their doors this year, bringing the total number of charters in California to 1,184.  Despite the growth and momentum, charter school students only represent about 7% of California’s student population.  Yet according to a number of polls and studies conducted in recent years a majority of parents feel charter schools do a better job than traditional public schools.

For eight years Disneynature has created films released for Earth Day.  Seeing these films has become a favorite tradition for my husband and I.  This year’s movie opens on Friday, April 17 and is called Monkey Kingdom.  Part of the proceeds from attending opening week goes to protecting monkeys and other endangered species in their natural habitats.  Watching Monkey Kingdom this week is something simple and enjoyable you can do while helping our endangered friends.
