Small Districts in Big Trouble: How Four Arizona School Systems Responded to Charter Competition.
Hess, Frederick; Maranto, Robert; Milliman, Scott
Teachers College Record, v103 n6 p1102-24 Dec 2001
Examined the responses to charter school competition of four small Arizona school districts. Overall, districts lost students to charter schools because they did not satisfy significant constituencies. Their responses depended on overall enrollment trends, quality of charter competition, quality of district leadership, and district size. Responses included reforming curricula, changing eadership, vilifying charter competitors, and attempting to absorb competitors. (SM)
