Charter and district schools... What's the difference?: Yavapai County school superintendent explains

On the surface, district schools and charter schools may seem worlds apart, but they are more alike than some might think.Both, for example, are funded by federal and state tax dollars, explained Tim Carter, Yavapai County school superintendent.

District schools, however, get additional funding from local tax dollars via secondary property taxes, while charters use private dollars generated by the school's sponsoring body.
