A Brief History
The Nation's First Charter School: A Teacher's Vision Becomes Reality City Academy, in St. Paul, Minnesota, was the first charter school in the nation to open its doors. Founded by two teachers with assistance from many of the first-year students, the school focuses on youth who have dropped out of school. City Academy, placing a heavy emphasis on student responsibility and decision making, is a small school with a personalized learning environment and has had significant success. Most of the students, all former drop-outs, have graduated and gone on to some kind of postsecondary education. Like most charter schools in Minnesota, this school was started "from scratch," rather than converted from an existing school. The school's director is also helping teachers in other states to create charter schools. -President Clinton's Call to Action for
American Education in the 21st Century
As of fall 1998, seven years after Minnesota's pioneering law, charter school legislation has passed or is pending in 34 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia. Several other states have bills under consideration in their legislatures, making it clear that the charter school movement has become a very popular vehicle of public education reform across the country. But the idea of allowing teachers and parents to form and run innovative, locally-controlled public schools had been around well before the legislation finally appeared.

Charter Schools
Encouraging competition between public schools by offering parents the opportunity to choose their child's school
39 states State and county officials More Education Plays Education policy expert Ted Kolderie popularized the first charter school blueprint in a 1990 report for the Progressive Policy Institute. Former Minnesota State Rep. Ember Reichgott-Junge introduced and helped pass the first charter law in 1991. As a result, City Academy in St. Paul, Minnesota became the first publicly chartered school, opening its doors in 1992. In the intervening years, 39 states and the District of Columbia have passed charter school legislation. Nationwide, there are now over 2,430 schools serving over 580,000 children. "Charter school parents and teachers create new approaches to meet student needs, and the public school system responds and benefits from their energetic innovation and strict accountability."

Table of Contents:
Introduction: The charter school movement is one of the fastest growing education reforms of the Nineties. In 1992, only two states, California and Minnesota, had passed charter school legislation. By the end of 1995, 19 states had charter school laws in place and at least 16 others had considered similar legislation. At the federal level, Congress passed legislation in 1994 authorizing grants to support states' charter school efforts. Despite such popular interest, fewer than 250 charter schools are currently operating nationwide. Whether this small but growing number of schools will lead to greater innovation and influence the systemwide transformation of public education remains to be seen. Below is a summary of the issues surrounding charter schools and the implications of recent research about the future of this movement. What constitutes a charter school?

What Are Charter Schools? Charter schools are public schools operated under a charter (contract) between a public agency and groups of parents, teachers, school administrators, or others who want to create more alternatives and choice within the public school system. The contracted agencies are expected to produce agreed-upon levels of student achievement within a certain period (usually three to five years). If they don't, their sponsors may end their charters. Charter schools give parents, students, and educators public school alternatives based on the idea that competition will bring new educational ideas. This brochure provides an overview of the charter school movement and directs you to additional sources for more information. What Do We Know About Charter Schools?

*Reason Public Policy Institute ORDER FORM*
Think Tank Offers Tools for Effective Change
CONTACT: George Passantino, 310/391-2245 AUGUST 26, 1997 Los Angeles, Calif. States wishing to enact effective charter school programs should grant charter schools complete legal independence from local school boards and contracts establishing clear performance standards. These were the findings of a report, Charter School Innovations: Keys to Effective Charter Reform, issued today by the Reason Public Policy Institute. "The success or failure of charter reform is highly dependent on the technical features of a particular charter statute," says study author, Theodor Rebarber, vice president of a company focusing on charter schools. "In five years, 26 charter statutes have been established, nationwide, due in part to renewed interest by the general public and consensus among both political parties about building a more dynamic educational system." RPPI¹s new study identifies several key components that are necessary for a state to consider when establishing a charter. The primary recommendations are: allow charter schools to be completely independent legal entities free from district governance; provide blanket waivers from regulations except in the areas of performance-based goals, health, safety and civil rights or certification requirements; create independent charter-approving entities and insulate them from political influence; establish direct state funding for schools, include operating and capital revenues; ensure access to long-term financing structures for facilities and other up-front costs; and avoid overall caps on the number of charter schools in a given jurisdiction.

Will They Revitalize or Undermine Public Education?
Charter schools have evoked a wide variety of responses among education leaders. Some educators believe charter schools will revitalize public education; others believe they will contribute to undermining it. But despite the controversy that surrounds them, charter schools have become a fact of life in U.S. education. Fully half of U.S. states now have laws allowing the creation of charter schools, many other states have pending charter-schools legislation, and more than 500 charter schools are currently in operation. The conflicting points of view about charter schools were represented at a panel discussion that took place at ASCD's most recent Annual Conference. Among the panelists arguing in support of charter schools was Joe Nathan of the University of Minnesota, author of Charter Schools: Creating Hope and Opportunity for American Education. Nathan first clarified what charter schools are. "These are public schools," he said. "They're schools of choice; they can be sponsored by a variety of publicly accountable organizations; they have a contract for results; and they have to show improved achievement or they're closed down." Charter schools must also be nonsectarian, Nathan noted, and they cannot use admissions tests to "pick and choose among kids."

March 1997
In 1996, numerous states added charter school laws and half of the states now have such laws. The crowning moment in the year of the charter school was President Clinton's announcement that he wanted federal money to stimulate charter school development. He wanted 30,000 of them. A move to charter schools on this scale would reverses a half-century policy of school and school district consolidation to achieve educational improvement and economic efficiencies. One reason behind the rapid advance of charter school legislation was the idea that it was a no-cost reform. Money flowed from existing public schools with the student to the new charter schools. Money belonged to the student, not the school. In most states, however, the per-pupil funding of charter schools is less than the state average cost per pupil. Furthermore, most charter laws insure the diversion of money from instruction to capital by failing to provide facilities for charter schools. A thoughtful analysis of charter school funding reveals that charter schools impose new costs and that they are not necessarily underfunded when all public revenue sources are matched to the specific kinds of students educated in charter schools. In fact, unless a charter school
