National Charter School Policy Forum (Washington, DC, May 5, 2008)
US Department of Education
The National Charter School Policy Forum of May 5, 2005 brought together 100 charter school leaders representing philanthropy, research, and practice. The panel discussants and forum participants participated in an interactive conversation about the next generation of charter schools. The forum's panels focused on three key topics: (1) The intersection of charter schools and philanthropy in developing and expanding strong systems of high-quality charter schools and increasing parental options; (2) Increasing charter school capacity in urban centers through strategic partnerships, authorizing practices and replication of successful models; and (3) Ensuring charter school quality over mediocrity in the design and implementation of high quality charter schools in urban and rural areas, especially in areas where the need for the highest quality schools is most pressing. Forum Agenda, Framework, Recommended Reading, and Selected Participant Biographies are included.
