Cooper Issues Statement For National Charter Schools Week


Location: Nashville, TN

"I'm proud to join President Obama in recognizing the important role public charter schools play in educating America's children. Charter schools are hubs for innovation, and working in partnership with public school administrators, these schools prepare students for success throughout life.

"The President has called on federal, state and local officials to work together make public charter schools successful. In his proclamation recognizing National Charter Schools Week, 2009, he praised public charter schools' "dedication and commitment to achievement in education." I second that commendation.

"We must do whatever it takes to improve our schools and help our children succeed. Public charter schools are a key part of achieving that goal."
