Report: Charter growth leveling off

Education Dive reports that growth in the charter sector is beginning to level off in California. The article cites a Getting Down to Facts II report, which assessed California’s education system and noted that the state has set “a low bar” for charter reauthorization. “Charter school authorizers in California operate with little oversight from the state. No mechanism exists for the state to prevent a district or county office with a poor track record from continuing to authorize schools, nor are there any public performance reports produced at the authorizer level,” the report said.
