At Success Academy Harlem 4,

like other schools in the Success Academy network,

educators demand excellence and orderliness from students.

charter school

 

The charter school movement

gained a foothold

in American education two decades ago

partly by asserting

that independently run,

publicly financed schools

would outperform traditional public schools

if they were exempted from onerous regulations.

 

The charter advocates

also promised that unlike traditional schools,

which were allowed to fail without consequence,

charter schools would be

rigorously reviewed and shut down

when they failed to perform.

Charter schools,

by definition, are publicly funded schools,

free to students and paid for by taxpayers.

 

They are also subject

to public oversight and control;

for example,

they have to employ licensed teachers

and administer state-mandated tests,

which private schools do not.

 

They can also be closed by districts

for underperformance.

 

However, also by definition,

charter schools maintain

a measure of independence

from public oversight.

 

They have freedom

from certain district and union rules;

for example,

they can have a longer school year or school day,

require uniforms,

or incorporate different topics in the curriculum.

 

They are also governed

by privately appointed boards.
