Support Federal Funding For Charter Schools!

Support Federal Funding For Charter Schools!  Without the Public Charter Schools Grant Program, MATES would not have many of the things that we do including much of our technology.

Send a letter to your member of Congress now urging support for Congress to provide $330 million to support the opening of high-quality charter schools across the country.

We need to make our voices heard! Simply enter your ZIP code to find your members of Congress and sign onto our letter calling for an increase in funding for the federal Charter Schools Program.

To make things easy, we have already written the letters for you, all you have to do is sign your name. But you can make changes to the letter to tell your personal experience with charter schools, if you’d like.


Thanks for supporting Charter Schools so that all students have a chance at a quality education.
