9/12/2017 Commission Testifies at Joint Committee on Education Expansion and Accountability Hearning
MCPSC continues to protect the public's interest and access to quality public schools, through charter schools. Charter schools are held to an accountability system consisting of three parts: 1) Parent Choice, 2) State Standards, and 3) Sponsors. Districts are held to state standards through MSIP. Charters are held accountable to state standards through a performance contract. Quality sponsors hold charter schools accountable, as well as protect access and school autonomy. The result is public school choice regardless of income, innovative public schools, and a reduction of poor performing public schools.
