How can authorizers make an impact on One Million Lives?

NACSA is working to support these efforts by advocating for stronger laws that will support smarter growth and stronger accountability. We have also launched new human capital initiatives and powerful, personalized online resources to strengthen the skills of authorizing staff.

But it will take a broad group of authorizers, working with state education agencies, reform groups, policymakers, funders and others in the charter sector and within public education more broadly to score this victory for children. Let’s work together to give a million more children the education they deserve—and a million more opportunities in life.

Open great new public schools

Close schools that fail kids and families

Protect school autonomy and the public interest

Thousands of charter schools provide an excellent education to students around the country. But there are still too many students in both traditional and charter public schools who don’t graduate and too few students academically prepared to succeed. While many charter schools perform at the highest levels, many others perform at the lowest levels.
