LIVE EVENT: What Do Biden’s Proposed Budget Cuts Mean for Charter Schools?

President Joe Biden is proposing a budget cut of $40 million to the Charter Schools Program in his request for the 2025 fiscal year, a 9% reduction of the federal government’s only funding source for creating new charter schools and replicating charter models. What could this mean for the charter school movement? Join AEI’s Robert Pondiscio as he hosts a panel of charter school leaders and experts—Great Hearts Academies’ Helen Baxendale, 50CAN’s Derrell Bradford, and Christy Wolfe of the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools—to discuss the state of the charter school movement and the possibility for bipartisan steps forward.
