The Health of the Public Charter School Movement: A State-by-State Analysis. Second Edition
Ziebarth, Todd; Bierlein Palmer, Louann
National Alliance for Public Charter Schools
In October 2014, the first edition of "The Health of the Public Charter School Movement: A State-by-State Analysis" was released. Both encouraging words and constructive criticism for how to improve the report going forward were received. This second edition builds on the solid foundation of the inaugural version, while making adjustments to account for some of the helpful feedback. The purpose of this report is to evaluate the health of each state's charter public school movement, as a companion to the annual evaluation of the strength of each state's charter public school law. One helpful way to understand the difference between the two reports is to think of one as focused on inputs (law rankings) and the other as focused on outputs (health-of-the-movement rankings). This report provides data about the health of the charter public school movement along with thirteen indicators of growth, innovation, and quality. Three notable changes for this second edition report focused on: (1) the criteria that states had to meet in order to be scored and ranked; (2) four quality indicators--two more than the previous year's report; and (3) how innovation was addressed in this report. Overall, there is much to celebrate about the health of the charter public school movement. However, continued efforts to strengthen the movement are essential, even in those states where the current movement is relatively healthy. Appended to the report are (1) A Rubric and (2) Data Sources.
