The Center for Education Reform invites all charter schools to submit a video for a chance to win money.

Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 15, 2016

September 26th is the deadline for The Center for Education Reform’s (CER) “Hey John Oliver! Back Off My Charter School” Video Contest. The contest was born after HBO’s Last Week Tonight’s host, John Oliver, did an “unfair and unwarranted segment, tearing apart charter schools and minimizing their impact,” said CER founder & CEO Jeanne Allen. The Center responded by creating this contest in order to set the record straight and showcase the powerful stories of how charter schools are providing an important option to students across the country.

Parents, students or school leaders, as well as students who are not currently in charter schools but would like to be, are encouraged to shoot informal videos on their mobile devices and send those in for a chance to win $100,000 for their schools!
Videos from charter schools are flowing in, and CER is reviewing entries. A panel of independent judges, including some celebrities, will select the best video that demonstrates the most distinguishing feature of the charter school experience.
