Charter ‘authorizers’ come under greater scrutiny in California

California’s 336 local and county charter school authorizers, plus the State Board of Education, face greater standards and oversight in determining whether to approve charters, under recommendations proposed by a state task force, reports EdSource. The article cites a study on charter school authorizing in California, written for PACE’s Getting Down to Facts II research initiative, in which the authors caution that “every school district is designated as a potential charter school authorizer, regardless of their capacity or intent, and authorizers act with minimal oversight, guidance or accountability.”
