Charter schools are required to live up to expectations — to ensure that all students have access to the high-quality educational opportunities that they are seeking.
Each year, between 3% and 4% of charter schools close, typically due to poor performance. In the 2014-15 school year, for example, 272 charter schools nationally were closed, according to the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools.
