Charter Management Organizations

Charter management organizations (CMOs) are nonprofit organizations dedicated to increasing the number of charter schools around the country. In partnership with Mathematica Policy Research, CRPE conducted the first national longitudinal study that analyzed how CMOs impact student outcomes. Read the report. We provide valuable lessons for charter school policymakers, funders, and educators such as:

  • How CMO strategies influence schools’ organizational health and instructional coherence
  • How CMO districts could limit or enhance CMO effectiveness
  • How CMOs influence school and student achievement
