The Seven Absolutely Universal, Non‐Negotiable, Unchanging Principles of Good Charter School Governance
by Brian L. Carpenter, PhD
No charter school board would hire a CEO who regarded his or her own professional development as optional. Yet how many charter school board members have worked to develop their own governance capacity? The result is observable in many places: charter school boards that interfere with management, waste taxpayer dollars, and fail to ensure that their schools educate children to world-class standards. The purpose of this monograph is to articulate a framework for charter school governance that will reverse this trend.
