QUALITY EDUCATION FOR ALL ALABAMA CHILDREN

At New Schools for Alabama, we believe every child should have the opportunity to attend a high-quality school. But the reality is that many children in Alabama — especially those in communities of color — do not.

We believe public charter schools can play a key role in addressing these inequities and give more Alabama children a seat in a high-quality public school.

 HERE’S WHY WHAT WE DO MATTERS 

96%

of Alabama children in underperforming schools are students of color.

36,696

Alabama students are enrolled in state-designated failing schools.

67%

of students enrolled in Alabama’s failing schools live in poverty.

WE’RE HERE TO GIVE CHILDREN — AND THEIR FAMILIES — HOPE

We do so by advocating and advancing policy that helps improve all schools in Alabama — not just charter schools. We do so by recruiting and supporting talented educators who want to start public schools — especially those of color.

We also engage the parents, families and communities of underserved children to give them the information they need to make appropriate school choices and get involved in their children’s education.

Ultimately, we’re not here to start charter schools. We’re here to give children and families hope. To give the children of our state the education they are entitled to and the opportunity they deserve.
