Recently, the way charter school authorizers are evaluated has seen a substantial shift across the United States. Comprehensive evaluations are being designed and implemented, each with features reflecting each of the state’s unique charter sectors. Our research provides a comparison of thirteen state authorizer accountability systems, inclusive of both general oversight measures and the evaluation system. Seven interviews were conducted to inform the larger analysis as well as four state-specific case studies. Emerging trends are described and recommendations for future research are made.
