Working Conditions in Charter Schools: What's the Appeal for Teachers?
Malloy, Courtney L.; Wohlstetter, Priscilla
Education and Urban Society, v35 n2 p219-41 Feb 2003
Synthesizes research on the work of charter school teachers, juxtaposing it with case studies of teachers in six urban elementary charter schools. Charter schools, with increased autonomy over personnel and budget, were free to make decisions regarding hiring, salary, and working conditions. Charter teachers worked longer hours with less job security (and often less pay) than public school teachers. Teachers tended to enjoy their professional lives in charter schools. (SM)
