Good to Gone: Five Lessons from Research about Charter Schools That Make the Leap . . . Into Extinction
by Brian L. Carpenter, PhD
In Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap . . . and Others Don’t, author Jim Collins examined companies that were best in class. In contrast, this report examines charter schools that were “worst in class.”
Much can be learned from failed charter schools that closed quickly. Authorizers, state associations, school boards, school executives, and others can use this monograph to create and perpetuate great schools.
