ASCD's policy newsletter, Policy Priorities, reflects the purpose of this quarterly policy publication, which is to provide background and context for critical, timely education policy issues.

Administrators, teachers, families, policymakers, journalists, and others read Policy Priorities to better inform the decisions they make and the work they do.

Policy Priorities is published four times each year. Copies are mailed to all ASCD Premium members, and all other members have online access.

The Promise and Pitfalls of Charter Schools After 25 Years

Although state laws vary widely in terms of the policies governing charter school oversight and accountability, these publically funded institutions, which receive freedom from the rules and regulations of traditional district schools in exchange for meeting agreed-upon performance targets, now serve an estimated 2.9 million students in more than 6,700 schools around the country. Moreover, the sector seems poised for rapid growth in the near future.

This issue of Policy Priorities examines the ideas that spurred the charter school movement, the evolution of the concept and rationales behind charters, and their current status as an education reform.
