Charter Schools Likely to Grow
Is it a better option? Will students learn more, test better? These questions continue to linger around charter schools and charter districts.
While there is no definitive answer, what is certain is that charter schools help answer a demand of the No Child Left Behind Act. Charters are one option for students in low-performing schools who want to transfer to better schools. Already, policy makers in California, the District of Columbia and Pennsylvania have created charter districts. Charter schools exist in 40 states.
