The charter school movement has swept across the country powered by the momentum of these appealing ideas, even without data demonstrating these much touted benefits. Gordon Castanza provides an analysis of the history of the charter school movement and of school accountability. His original research reveals the answer to the question, Are charter schools more accountable to the public than other schools?” Carolyn H. Chapman, Professor Emerita, U. of Nevada, Reno”
