Starting a New Charter

Charter schools provide an entrepreneurial option for public education. Creative and ingenious intellectuals create schools to better engage marginalized populations. The goal of charter schools is to increase the quality of learning through innovation. In order to create a viable school, there should be a proper investigation into the feasibility of the school. If the operation is not sustainable, the school should not be created. Here is a document discussing the steps to create a charter school.
