A Think Twice Review of:

Trends in Charter School Authorizing

Think Twice - May 11, 2006

This report surveyed charter school authorizers to explore how they rated on factors that the report’s authors considered important.

Reviewer(s) - Ernest House, University of Colorado

House’s review finds serious problems with the author’s analysis of the survey results noting that a 33 percent survey response rate is very low. Equally as important, the report’s main conclusion, which trumpets nonprofits and independent chartering boards as the highest quality authorizers is not supported by the data.
