Corporations, Chambers, and Charters: How Businesses Can Support High-Quality Public Charter Schools

Charter School Guide Cover Image

Given both the promise of charter schools and the urgent need to foster higher quality in the charter school sector, ICW commissioned this guide to outline how business can support charter schools. This guide captures recent developments in the charter sector and the advice of business leaders, leading donors, and partners on how businesspeople and chamber leaders can support high-quality charter schools, both in their local communities and on a national scale. Private philanthropy has been investing in the charter school movement from the beginning. This guide builds on the lessons philanthropists (including successful business leaders) have learned that will be particularly applicable to the business community.
