A Call to Action: To Improve the Quality of Full-Time Virtual Charter Public Schools
National Alliance for Public Charter Schools
Currently, more than 180,000 students attend 135 full-time virtual charter schools in 23 states and the District of Columbia. While some students do well in a full-time virtual charter school environment, too many of these schools are not providing a quality educational program to the vast majority of their students, while enrolling too many who are simply not a good fit for attending a fully online school. In this report, "A Call to Action to Improve the Quality of Full-Time Virtual Charter Public Schools," the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools, the 50-State Campaign for Achievement Now (50CAN) and the National Association of Charter School Authorizers (NACSA) propose specific policy recommendations to help states better hold full-time virtual charter schools accountable for student results. A list of resources is included.
