Quite simply, we believe in better education opportunities for every child. A better tomorrow depends on it.
MAPSA, Michigan’s Charter School Association, represents a statewide movement of charter school stakeholders. For over 20 years, we have harnessed the power of our charter community through direct and digital grassroots engagement, identifying their shared challenges and developing resources that support their work. We facilitate public support for the movement by utilizing our effective legislative avenues to build positive government relations, amplifying stories of success from our schools, educators and students statewide, and working closely with charter stakeholders to understand their needs and challenges, so that we can effectively give the charter community a voice on the issues that matter.
We are incredibly proud of the diversity reflected in our movement - from educators, to students and families. That diversity is something we strive to elevate in all our efforts - from advocacy, to storytelling, to supporting educators who service varying communities of color across the state. Our goal as an organization is simply to advance educational equity - and that equity should not depend on race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion or any other factor of identity.
