Your Turn: Basis teachers are paid competitively, despite what you may have read, in part due to the generosity of our parents and founders Michael and Olga Block.

Virtually everyone agrees. At Basis Charter Schools, we’ve put these words into action by soliciting voluntary donations from our families to help boost what our teachers earn.

Fundraising is critically important for public charter schools in Arizona, as charters receive approximately $1,000 less per student than traditional district schools when all sources of funds are considered.
