Ohio's charter schools have been under constant fire. Just last week, CREDO at Stanford University released a report on the academic performance of Ohio charter students that found them lagging their peers in traditional public schools. It's time that we look under the hood and figure out what's working and what needs to be fixed in the charter school sector.

Join Fordham as we welcome Bellwether Education Partners' Andy Smarick to Columbus as he unveils his new report The Road to Redemption: Ten Policy Recommendations for Ohio's Charter School Sector. Andy has dug deep into Ohio's charter school law with an eye toward authorizer best-practices, good governance models, and quality outcomes for students.

After a short presentation by Smarick, hear reactions from a panel discussion of Ohio-based charter school experts that includes President and CEO of the Ohio Alliance for Public Charter Schools Dr. Darlene Chambers, Senate Education Chair Peggy Lehner, House Education Vice Chair Andy Brenner, and the United Schools Network's Chief Learning Officer John Dues. A question and answer session will follow the panel.
