Charter Schools

FOR OTHER SCHOOLS which desire systemic reform yet do not wish to resort to bringing in corporate management, there is the option of charter schooling. A charter school answers directly to state-level education departments; the standard course of management by a district-level commission is bypassed entirely. If a school can prove to the state that it has the ability and the desire to reform their system, yet feels school district bureaucracy may get in the way of that reform, it may receive a charter to control all reform decisions. Charter schools become independent entities, yet must also face serious questions of accountability.

Tell me more about accountability.
I'd like to continue with school structure reform.
I'd like to examine other reform styles.
