NACSA’s Statement on President Biden’s FY2025 Budget Proposal

Dr. Karega Rausch, NACSA president and CEO, issued the following statement on President Biden’s FY2025 budget proposal.

NACSA remains committed to ensuring access to high-quality public schools for all students. There is an urgent need to accelerate student learning through investments in a variety of public schools, including charter schools. 

While there are some elements we are pleased to see in President Biden’s FY2025 budget proposal, including investments in Title I, IDEA, and other programs to advance student learning that will benefit students attending charter schools, we are disappointed to see a proposed cut to the Charter Schools Program (CSP) – a lifeline that empowers new and existing charter schools to accelerate student achievement.

During a time of  increased demand for charter schools, we look forward to seeing other ideas and priorities from Congressional leadership that emerge during the budgeting process.
