Closed doorsDespite strong practices by some charter school authorizers, in some states there may still be authorizers that are unwilling or unable to close failing schools. States require the capacity and authority to intervene in such circumstances to protect students from chronically low-performing schools. NACSA encourages states to establish in statute a process for automatic closure of underperforming charter schools.
