This paper takes a look at the history and current role of charter schools in America's public education system. It outlines the advantages and disadvantages of the charter school compared to a traditional public school and also examines the history and future of charter schools in America.

From the Paper:

"Much like traditional public schools, charter schools receive funding based on their student enrollment. As long as a charter school fulfills the terms of their contract their charter will not be revoked (Good & Braden, 2000). Charters are infrequently revoked because of poor student performance. Only four percent of granted charters have been revoked nationally and that termination usually stems from poor financial management. Similar to traditional public schools, charter schools have to submit a yearly report of finances, and indices of progress toward educational goals and parental and student satisfaction (Fusarelli, 2002)."
