As state and local governments in crease spending on charter schools, more and more real estate investors are becoming interested.
Charter schools, while often operated by nonprofit organizations, often rent and buy buildings from private real estate companies.
Many real estate firms are now investing in charter schools because of the growth of the charter school movement. According to the National Alliance for Charter Schools, 500 new public charter schools opened in the 2014-2015 school year.
