·       Gubernatorial Candidate Frank Riggs: On the occasion of National Charter Schools Week (May 4-10), gubernatorial candidate Frank Riggs salutes the remarkable work being done by charter schools in Arizona and nationally.  "Public charter schools are reforming K-12 education through the market principles of competition and choice," Riggs said.  "I admire beyond words the passion, idealism, vision and commitment of charter school founders, leaders and teachers." Riggs, considered to be one of the fathers of the charter school movement in Arizona and nationally, continued  "Charter schools are the most important, scalable and successful initiative to reform and improve American K-12 education in our lifetimes. No child is ever assigned to attend a charter school.  Charter schools must compete to enroll students and therefore must be fully responsive and accountable to parents."

Charter schools have grown at the rate of 350 new schools per-year over the past decade.  Today, over 2.5 million students attend nearly 6,500 charter schools across the nation, with more schools per capita in Arizona than any other state.  The average charter school wait list is nearly 300 students.  Over 60 percent of charter schools serve student populations where the majority of students qualify as low-income.
