rs or community leaders who describe the school’s missions, administration, goals and structures independent of the traditional public schooling systems. Charter schools are an alternate form of delivering education but these schools fail to meet the required standards needed by an education institution making them unsuitable for a child’s education.
Chartered schools are not funded maximally as compared to the public schools. Hence fewer facilities are provided to the students as compared to the public schools. Students have less optimal school facilities and that affects their extra-curricular activities. Charter schools established with small infrastructure or poorly financed locations lack play fields, play areas, gyms or swimming pools. Children are not offered sports activities and they have lesser space for physical activities. This is a major set-back as extra-circular activities form a crucial part of a school life. Due to limited finances the school also does not offer transportation facilities. Some charter schools open in existing school settings while most of them are housed in self-financed locations. They are dependent on the donations provided by parents and by fundraising. These setbacks restrict the lower income families from joining the charter schools.
Due to the transportation costs, limited information and very high admission requirements, many students are unable to join the charter schools. Hence, these school systems display greater inequality in terms of socioeconomic factors. Certain schools do not allow admissions for disabled students which is also a setback for many families and students. Furthermore charter schools that are established by certain communities can exclude certain groups and also ignore or not teach certain values, which leads to lack of diversity in such schools. Hence, these schools tend to create an economic and racial segregation among the society.
The chartered schools do not fulfil the standard requirements
