Last month the Washington Post reported that D.C. has more high-performing charter schools than ever.
A benefit of private schools is the ability to select a school that matches your child’s needs and your value system and for the school to do the same. And a charter system is an excellent alternative to fee based private school. It has many of the advantages; open competition, selection
and flexibility for the teachers and administrators.
If you find you can’t afford a private school consider getting in the lottery for a charter school education instead.
