Dr. Steve Perry Questions NAACP’s Motives In Calling For A Moratorium On Charter Schools

The NAACP’s Board of Directors this weekend ratified a resolution that calls for a freeze on the expansion of charter schools.

The board cited the schools’ lack of transparency, accountability, and harsh disciplinary practices as some of the reasons for the decision. The NAACP also believes federal dollars used to fund charter schools could be better spent on making traditional public schools better.

In a statement, the NAACP said:

“While we have reservations about charter schools, we recognize that many children attend traditional public schools that are inadequately and inequitably equipped to prepare them for the innovative and competitive environment they will face as adults. Under-funded and under-supported, these traditional public schools have much work to do to transform curriculum, prepare teachers, and give students the resources they need.”

The National Alliance for Public Schools called the NAACP’s decision “misguided.”

Dr. Steve Perry, Founding Head of Schools of Capital Preparatory Magnet School, said on Monday’s edition ofNewsOne Now that the NAACP “is stalwart in their position regardless of the fact that it’s based upon specious information and cherry-picked data.”
