Charter schools are public schools. Intended as incubators for innovation, charter schools are free from some of the regulations and red tape of traditional public schools. Many charter school systems, like YES Prep, are open-enrollment and serve all students, while others have admission requirements. In Texas, charter schools receive state funding, but do not receive any funding for facilities and so must raise those dollars privately.
