Changing One Million Lives

Changing One Million Lives

Today, NACSA launched One Million Lives, a multi-pronged campaign to provide better schools to one million children by closing failing charter schools and opening many more good ones.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – While a great many public charter schools are among their states’ best performers and are paving the way for educational innovation across the U.S., too many are failing to provide a quality education. The National Association of Charter School Authorizers (NACSA), which represents government and other entities that approve and oversee charter schools, today called on charter authorizers to be more proactive in closing failing schools and opening great ones. NACSA issued the challenge as its new membership survey shows the closure rate for charters in renewal has doubled from year to year but is still leaving far too many schools among the lowest performers, according to state accountability data. As a result, too many children still do not have access to a quality education.
