This Is Not Your Mom and Pop's Charter School

Rockefeller Institute Forum, June 10, 2009

As the number of students attending charter schools across the U.S. continues to grow, leaders of these independent schools are drawing important lessons that will be key to addressing lingering challenges, according to experts who spoke at a Rockefeller Institute of Government Public Policy Forum on June 10. The forum, the fourth in a series held at the Institute, featured Lemov and Chester E. Finn Jr., of the Thomas B. Fordham Institute and Stanford University’s Hoover Institution. Lemov's organization, Uncommon Schools, is a New York-based non-profit charter management organization (CMO) that launched and manages 16 charters schools throughout New York.
