Why We Support EHTP

Because charter schools must generally enroll children throughout the district by lottery, it is hard for them to be connected to a neighborhood in the same way an elementary school with zoned enrollment often is, even after years of operating in a neighborhood. Added to that, the better the school is, the more applicants it attracts from across a district.

It’s why we are heartened to see an increasing number of community-based organizations starting charter schools. EHTP has been providing after-school tutoring to children for more than 50 years. This fall it opened up a charter school in East Harlem to expand on its work. Not surprisingly given its roots, it has the support of the community.

That’s why we are whole-heartedly supporting EHTP’s quest to win a million dollar grant from Chase. We’ve voted EHTP–hope you do as well.
