Robin Lake considers the reasons, and possible solutions, for the recent decline in charter growth.
The Center on Reinventing Public Education is a research and policy analysis center at the University of Washington Bothell developing systemwide solutions for K–12 public education.
Our mission is to find the most innovative, pragmatic, equitable, and successful ways to address the complex challenges in public education. Through our research and policy analysis, we offer evidence-based solutions that help educators and administrators do their best work so that every child can have access to an excellent education.
We envision a public education system that attracts and grows talented teachers and leaders, where all families have great neighborhood and city-wide public school options to meet their children’s unique needs, where public funds flow equitably to students, where all schools regularly innovate and problem-solve, and where those overseeing schools ensure that every child has access to excellent teachers and excellent schools.
