This is a post from the Durham Progressive Democrats on Facebook on March 9, 2022. A post like this contributes to the idea that charter schools are private schools and not part of the public school system. How would you refute this claim? As charter school stakeholders, it is important that we are prepared with the facts when these types of conversations arise, As part of our Mythbusting Series, we will address common charter school myths like this one and provide the truth.
