Any effort to increase the number of charter schools should be accompanied by an equal effort to ensure quality oversight that maintains high standards, preserves school-level autonomy, and safeguards student and public interests, testifies Greg Richmond of the National Association of Charter School Authorizers before Congress. He pinpoints three accountability standards: contracts, audits, and student performance. Charters that misspend money and do not produce excellent students should be closed, he says.
