Free to Lead: Autonomy in Highly Successful Charter Schools. Issue Brief
Ableidinger, Joe; Hassel, Bryan C.
National Alliance for Public Charter Schools
Autonomy is a key component of the charter school concept. By allowing charter schools to have autonomy over decisions concerning finance, personnel, scheduling, curriculum and instruction, states have enabled many of these schools to produce stellar results for their students. This issue brief explores autonomy at five excellent charter schools across the country. When interviewed, all five school leaders identified ways autonomy has enhanced their ability, and the ability of their teachers, to achieve high levels of student performance.
