Ableidinger, Joe; Steiner, Lucy; Spong, Angie; Hassel, Bryan C.
National Alliance for Public Charter Schools
In 2005, the Task Force on Charter School Quality and Accountability issued "Renewing the Compact," a position statement for the charter school sector that presented recommendations for achieving the goals of growth and quality. This report evaluates the sector's progress on those goals and recommends bold actions to capitalize on its successes while confronting persistent challenges. By taking these bold actions now, critical stakeholders can build a breakthrough sector and create a results-driven culture, which will improve the impact of charter schools on student outcomes and the education system. Appended are: (1) Seven Principles of Quality Chartering, from Original "Renewing the Compact" Position Statement; (2) Reflections and Recommendations from Original "Renewing the Compact" Position Statement; (3) Research Framework; (4) List of Key Resources; (5) List of Interviewees; and (6) How the Charter Sector Can Transform Public Education. (Contains 26 endnotes.) [This report was prepared for the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools by Public Impact.]
