The Kentucky Board of Education devoted an entire day Nov. 28, 2016 to a discussion of research, expert testimony and views on charter schools. This is a link to webcast of that KBE work session.

This link is to the agenda of the session above, which in turn embeds links to all the supporting documents that were discussed, including a comparison of state charter school policies, a report by Kentucky’s Prichard Committee on Academic Excellence and several recent research studies.
