Unionized Charter Schools: Dashboard Data from 2009-10

National Alliance

The number of charter schools that hold collective bargaining agreements with teachers’ unions has largely been unknown. Over the years, newspaper articles reported on a handful of examples of unionized charter schools, but the extent to which charter schools were unionized could only be estimated. To remedy this, during the 2009-10 school year, the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools collected data to determine the teachers’ union status of every charter school nationwide.
