Charter schools have generally been born out of the vision of a founding team consisting of individuals who bring a deep commitment to the community they’ll serve and a particular approach to educating students. It’s a highly personal undertaking — so how could collaboration among charter schools strengthen the sector when so many exist due to the independent ideas and investments of a few?
I predict mergers in the charter sector will become more prevalent over the next three to five years, as the political landscape and financial climate continues to change. However, mergers are not the only option.
