Elected officials and policymakers have a choice about where to invest educational resources and a responsibility to invest wisely. Charter schools are, simply put, a good investment. Our findings are just one more reason why lawmakers in Albany should raise the cap on charters in New York City and give the more than 53,000 Big Apple families on charter waitlists the chance to get the sound education they deserve.

Throughout April, the city’s public charters, including Success Academy, the network I operate, will hold their annual lotteries to select who gets a seat. These are needed because city charter schools have far more applicants than available slots for kids. Last year, applications to the city’s public charter schools hit an all-time high. More than 79,600 families vied for fewer than 27,000 seats, leaving 52,000 kids on waiting lists. The solution? Use available space in public-school buildings to co-locate new public charters.
