OAPCS Busts Charter School Myths - Myth 7 of 10

Numerous myths and misperceptions exist about charter school accountability and performance. Twice weekly, we will correct these misunderstandings using "just the facts".



Myth: Charter schools drain money from traditional public schools.

Fact: Charter schools generally operate with just two-thirds of the per pupil funding provided for traditional public school students, and those funds must be stretched to cover the significant costs of facilities and transportation. With very limited exceptions, Ohio charter schools receive no share of local or levy funding.
