Can Charter Schools be Scaled Successfully?
Last week’s Waiting for Superman’s debate asked the question, ‘Can Charter Schools be Scaled Successfully?’
Kevin Hall, a member of DreamBox Learning’s Board of Directors, weighed in on the debate. Hear both sides of the debate and tell us what you think!
Position A: “We are beginning to see CMOs succeed in delivering consistent high-level quality across their networks. For example, Aspire Public Schools operated 25 schools last year and averaged a 9.5 (out of 10) similar-schools ranking, meaning their schools are averaging a ranking in the top 5 percent of schools in California serving similar demographics.”
Position B: “Charter Management Organizations have so far scaled faster and seemingly with more consistency than any of the many failed dissemination and replication strategies of the past, including comprehensive school reform. But the challenge is still immense.”
