Dear Members of the Montessori Community,

Last year, families from around the country sent an email to Congress asking for support for charter schools—and members of Congress heard your message. The Charter Schools Program received a funding increase and your advocacy will help to open the doors for many new charter schools across the country.

Our emails, tweets, and phone calls are truly making a difference—but our work is not done yet. There are still more than one million student names on wait lists for charter schools across the country. We need your help to tell Congress to continue to make funding for charter schools a priority in 2016. 

That’s why MRCS is supporting a new campaign to share stories about the positive impact charter public schools have on students, families, teachers, and communities. We have put a link on our website which will direct you to the national campaign. You can read the inspirational stories and send a short message to Congress urging additional support for the charter school movement. Don’t worry, sending an email to Congress is easy. Just enter your information and the National Alliance for Charter Schools will do the rest of the work for you. 

Thank you for your continuing support of MRCS and high quality Charter Schools everywhere!
