Taking It Slow: An Alaska Educator Urges Caution in Starting Charters.
Sherman, Lee; Castanza, Gordon E.
Northwest Education, v6 n3 p37-39 Spr 2001
A retired teacher and administrator advocates charter schools, but feels a solid research base is needed before rushing into them. Many charter school founders don't know what it takes to run the business aspect of schools, and Alaska's legislation has no oversight or accountability provisions. Charter schools need seasoned leadership, well-defined curricula, quantifiable objectives, and accountability. (TD)
