Policy & Lessons from Charter Schools: Conversation with Cara Stillings Candal

November 8, 2018

I had the opportunity to talk with Dr. Cara Stillings Candal who is a Senior Fellow at Pioneer Institute and the author of The Fight for the Best Public Charter Schools in the Nation. In this conversation, we discuss the findings of her research, the lessons learned from Massachusetts about the role of autonomy and accountability in state policy, and how to foster innovative school solutions as a desire to impact the educational quality for all students.

Here is a great article that helps summarize the findings of the book: https://www.educationnext.org/fight-for-the-best-charter-schools-in-the-country-what-massachusetts-got-right-wrong/
