StudentsFirstNY Statement on IBO Report Detailing Inequity in Charter School Funding

This morning, the New York City Independent Budget Office released data showing charter schools housed in private space receive 16% less funding per student than district schools.

"A kid is a kid is a kid. All public school students deserve equal funding, but today's IBO report reveals an inequity that must be addressed. It's time to stop treating charter school students inequitably," said StudentsFirstNY Executive Director Jenny Sedlis.
