NACSA Announces Campaign for Closing More Failing Charters

More must be done to close failing charter schools and improve systems for opening high-quality charter schools to ensure that the charter school sector lives up to its ideal of improving education by exchanging school autonomy for accountability, according to the head of the National Association of Charter School Authorizers (NACSA).

NACSA President and CEO Greg Richmond announced November 28, 2012, a “One Million Lives” advocacy campaign to urge states to adopt specific laws that hold schools and their authorizers accountable for performance and to establish more statewide authorizers that NACSA says are better able to implement professional practices.
