Fulfilling the Compact: Building a Breakthrough, Results-Driven Public Charter School Sector

Joe Ableidinger, Lucy Steiner, Angie Spong and Bryan C. Hassel

In 2005, the Task Force on Charter School Quality and Accountability issued Renewing the Compact, a position statement for the charter school sector that presented recommendations for achieving the goals of growth and quality. This report evaluates the sector’s progress on those goals and recommends bold actions to capitalize on its successes while confronting persistent challenges. By taking these bold actions now, critical stakeholders can build a breakthrough sector and create a results-driven culture, which will improve the impact of charter schools on student outcomes and the education system.
