"Charter schools are simply publicly funded, privately run schools" – Stephen Dyer

The charter school movement began twenty years ago after Minnesota was the first state to pass a charter school law in 1991. Today, there are more than 6,000 charter schools across the United States providing education to more than 2 million students.


Since Ohio established its pilot charter school program in Toledo in 1997, the state's charter sector has seen rapid growth - today nearly 400 charters enroll Ohio students. However,  a recent study from the Center for Research on Education Outcomes at Stanford University reported that more than 40 percent of Ohio's charter schools perform poorly.


Join Stephen Dyer, Education Policy Fellow at Innovation Ohio, for a conversation on how and why Ohio has struggled to achieve excellence in its charter schools.
