NAACP Calls for a Moratorium on Charter School Expansion

10/23/2016 The NAACP has called for a moratorium on charter school expansion until states pass measures to ensure comparable transparency and accountability with public schools, prevention of harmful diversion of funds from public schools, and protections against high expulsions and re-segregation. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/answer-sheet/wp/2016/10/15/naacp-ratifies-controversial-resolution-for-a-moratorium-on-charter-schools/?postshare=2531476588926893&tid=ss_fb

Here are their requirements to lift the moratorium:

1. Charter schools are subject to the same transparency and accountability standards as public schools;
2. Public funds are not diverted to charter schools at the expense of the public school system;
3. Charter schools cease expelling students that public schools have a duty to educate;
4. Cease to perpetuate de facto segregation of the highest-performing children from those whose aspirations may be high but whose talents are not yet as obvious
