This paper states that the charter school movement is a very promising reform movement positioned to increase the educational standard of the United States. The author presents the guidelines upon which the design and the general operation of charter schools are based. The paper relates that, because of their small size and limited number, charter schools can only provide public school options for a limited number of families and cannot pressure the entire public school system to reform.

From the Paper:

"Charter schools are designed to give families the choice on where they want their children to enroll in. Charter schools may accept student enrollees which are not included in their immediate district. Charter schools also act as laboratories in which successful practices in teaching and learning could be identified and later learned and replicated by the traditional public schools. Also, because charter schools are not heavily regulated by the school districts, policies that are identified to be most prohibitive in the pursuit of educational excellence can be eliminated for all the schools."
