The $500 Million Question: Can Charter Management Organizations Deliver Quality Education at Scale?
Hall, Kevin; Lake, Robin
Education Next, v11 n1 p64-73 Win 2011
Charter school management organizations (CMOs) have emerged as a popular means for bringing charter schooling to scale. Advocates credit CMOs with delivering a coherent model of charter schooling to a growing number of children across numerous sites. Skeptics have wondered whether CMOs constitute an effective management approach, whether they won't merely re-create the pathologies of school districts as they grow in size and scale, and whether they are well-suited to make use of new technological tools. In this forum, Robin Lake of the University of Washington's Center on Reinventing Public Education (CRPE) and Charter School Growth Fund (CSGF) CEO Kevin Hall discuss what people know about the strengths and frailties of CMOs, what the future holds, and what promising alternatives might be.
