Networks or charter schools typically mean schools that are started by teachers, school districts, parents, community, members or entrepreneurs. Charter management organizations usually manage charter schools. They are public-funded independent schools that are given funds according to the number of students who have enrolled. However, the charter management organizations may also look for private funding. Charter schools can create their teaching policies, core values and methods that they believe will positively impact their students by supporting their growth through education and preparing them for the next level.
Rocketship Education, just like other charter schools, has gone through its share of criticisms in the past. However, Rocketship has grown through the critique and seeks to shape education to each person in both differentiated instruction and full grade group learning. The criticism that Rocketship Education receives will only show them where to correct and hence be in a position to educate the students to the best of their capabilities. Rocketship is continually pushing to create a high achieving environment in underserved communities in the hopes of getting rid of the achievement gap. It does this through innovative teaching methods and formation of society within its school regions.
Rocketship Education seeks to enable students to explore their rights to make discoveries, to be imaginative and to learn and discover the world around them.
