Calls for Balance and Fairness as SBE Looks to Set Standards for Low-Performing Schools

August 5, 2010

The State Board of Education will consider new standards for identifying low performing charter schools in September, calling also for more accountability at their time of renewal. CCSA has long supported increased accountability for charters, but is aiming to make the process a balanced one. The Los Angeles Times editorial "Weeding Out Underperforming Charter Schools" examines the standards under consideration by the state board, while California Watch takes a deeper look at the issue.

For more information on CCSA's position, listen to CCSA President and CEO Jed Wallace's comments during the Patt Morrison radio show (NPR) earlier this week.
