A Think Twice Review of:

Charter School Autonomy: A Half-Broken Promise

Think Twice - May 26, 2010

Publisher/Think Tank - Thomas B. Fordham Institute, with Public Impact

Author(s) -

This report argues that autonomy is a prerequisite for there to be innovative, effective charter schools.

Reviewer(s) - Charisse Gulosino, University of Massachusetts-Boston

In her review, Gulosino finds that the report assumes the positive impact of autonomy, but provides no empirical evidence to support this. She indicates that the report is of very little value to anyone concerned with charter schools including policy makers, school leaders, parents and charter supporters.
