At Bellwether we do a lot of work with charter schools and school districts. Today we’re releasing a status update on the charter school sector based on a lot of research and analysis we’ve pulled together in the course of all that. Charters are growing, and they’re not going away, but how the charter story plays out for students and communities remains an open question. In the meantime there is a lot of mythology and misinformation on all sides of the debate. This deck is an effort to cut through that and take a look at where things stand. In particular, we look at quality, growth, trends where there is evidence, challenges, opportunities, and the variance around the country today (those slides are especially interesting in my view) as charters play out differently in different places. Read it here.
