Jed Wallace, president and CEO of the California Charter Schools Association (CCSA) penned an op-ed for Edsource calling for high accountability for charter schools and for the charter community to lead the way.

Wallace writes:

"Many of California's charter schools are among the best public schools in the state, if not the nation, but some are also among the worst. It is time for the charter community to fix the failings in the sector so that more children have the chance to attend a great school."

Read the rest of Wallace's op-ed.

The op-ed highlights the "One Million Lives" campaign launched by the National Association of Charter School Authorizers (NACSA) in November. Learn more about the campaign and CCSA's accountability work to date.
