TLC Moderating Panel on Charter Authorizing

Adam Aberman of The Learning Collective is the moderator of the panel: “Charter Authorization: Road to Greatness or Mediocrity?” This is part of the inaugural 2017 Independent Charter School Symposium.

Charter schools were created as laboratories of innovation, but is charter authorization oversight stifling innovation in the name of accountability? What should be the key elements in balancing school autonomy with effective oversight? How can your school avoid the reversion to the mean? What constitutes reliable evidence and how is it collected and used?

The panel is set to debate these issues in New York on October 12th. Hope to see you there.
