Extractions: Community Academy Public Charter School The first school visited was The Community Academy Public Charter in Northwest, DC, with Fonda Sutton, the schools director and Kent Amos, founder of The Urban Family Institute and driving force behind the Academy. Amos gave the philosophical background for the schools creation, which comes from his experience with the violence and crime that claimed the lives of several of the children who he has mentored and taken into his family. Amos is committed to "creating a world where children plan for college, not for funerals." In his charter school, children are respected for their abilities, helped with special needs and encouraged to achieve. According to Amos, the school has to look at the substantive difference between how they educate a child and how they prepare him/her to be a citizen in their community. The Community Academy is a neighborhood-based, multiple campus charter that offers primary through secondary education. Next year they will add another site in another location within the city. Currently a Pre K-7 grade school, the Academy is preparing to accept classes of students that will bring enrollment to 4,000, up to grade twelve. A nine-member board of community members monitors the school. The school seeks to offer children a nurturing village experience by including social services and education to family members. Sponsors of the Academy hope to create a neighborhood in which "families have the resources necessary to realize their potential, individually and collectively." This goal, they believe will best allow a child to reach his/her full potential and become a responsible adult who actively pursues lifelong learning opportunities.

Extractions: The idea behind public charter schools is that parents, given a variety of public schools to choose from, will pick the schools they think best meet the academic needs of their children. This will create competition for students among public schools - charter and traditional - that will bring across-the-board improvements in public education. Public charter schools are organized as non-profit corporations and are freed from most of the rules that burden traditional public schools. In exchange for this freedom from central control, public charter schools are held accountable for improved student achievement. How a public charter school gets its students to learn is up to the school's board of trustees; whether student achievement has been sufficient is monitored by each school's chartering authority. Thirty-six states and the District of Columbia have passed public charter school laws, often in response to the demands of parents. Public charter schools are especially popular with inner-city parents, many of whose children have long been denied a decent education. In the District of Columbia, Kansas City, and Milwaukee, for example, between 10 percent and 15 percent of all public school children now attend public charter schools.

Friends Of Choice In Urban Schools DC's Neighborhoods The district of columbia has the central control has enabled thedistrict's public charter was the first public, urban boarding school in http://www.focus-dccharter.org/aboutpcs/schoollist.asp
Extractions: Ninety-nine percent of the District's public charter school students are members of minority groups. Public charter schools are located in seven of the District's eight wards and are more frequently located in tracts with lower incomes and higher poverty rates than are traditional public schools. Nearly two-thirds of public charter school students qualify for free and reduced lunch. Freedom from central control has enabled the District's public charter schools to innovate in many different ways. Often employing cutting-edge whole-school design models, about half of D.C.'s public charter schools offer an academically rigorous liberal arts curriculum. Many of the remainder offer curricula focused on a particular subject theme, like arts, foreign language immersion, or technology. The rest target niche markets, such as students who are several years behind grade level, children in the juvenile justice system, or adult learners. One D.C. charter was the first public, urban boarding school in the United States.
