Moving beyond the debate over whether or not charter schools should exist, A Smarter Charter wrestles with the question of what kind of charter schools we should encourage. The authors begin by tracing the evolution of charter schools from teacher union leader Albert Shanker’s original vision of giving teachers room to innovate while educating a diverse population of students, to today’s charter schools where the majority of teachers are not unionized and student segregation levels are even higher than in traditional public schools. In the second half of the book, the authors examine two key reforms currently seen in a small but growing number of charter schools―teacher voice and socioeconomic integration―that have the potential to improve performance and reshape the stereotypical image of what it means to be a charter school.Important reading for policymakers, educators, researchers, and all citizens interested in the future of America’s public schools, A Smarter Charter features:Profiles of charter schools that are bucking the prevailing trends, including their performance data and the challenges they face.Best practices from successful charter schools, such as methods for attracting a diverse student body and examples of innovative teacher contracts.Reform strategies that can improve student outcomes in a variety of public schools, not just charters.
