California Assembly Bill 1316 (AB 1316) will have a tremendously negative impact on charter school students in our state, including our own Method students and families. In recent years, various bills have been introduced and passed that have severely impacted and limited our ability to serve students. AB 1316 is undoubtedly the biggest attack on charter schools - and school choice for families - since the inception of charter schools through the Charter Schools Act of 1992. Assembly Bill 1316 further entrenches the "education based on zip code, not by choice" mentality in California. It also perpetuates harmful myths about charter schools - and particularly non-classroom based schools.
