Thomas B. Fordham Institute, National Alliance, NACSA, Louann Bierlein Palmer, MIchelle Godard Terrell, Bryan C. Hassel and C. Peter Svahn

Responding to a request from top Ohio elected officials, the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, the National Association of Charter School Authorizers, and the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools prepared this report, which sets forth 17 recommendations to make Ohio’s charter school program the strongest in the nation. The research team, coordinated by Public Impact and including Louann Bierlein Palmer, Michelle Godard Terrell, Bryan Hassel, and Peter Svahn, helped these three organizations examine documents, interview officials, review news accounts, plumb data sources, and canvass the country for promising ideas that could be useful to Ohio policymakers.
