Question: What is the difference between a charter school and a private school?
Answer: A charter school is regulated by more government restrictions than a private school because it receives government money to operate. Private schools have more freedom to run the school however they choose because they are privately funded. While almost all private schools charge tuition, charter schools do not. Both types of schools can be accredited. However, more charter schools are accredited than private schools.
