This collection of research-based articles uplifts and reignites the passion and dedication of existing charter school educators, administrators, board members, and community supporters. This compilation also educates and inspires those new to the charter school movement. This book demonstrates that parents must have the right to choose the best educational platform for their children despite purchasing power. Additionally, the research provided insists this is an American right all parents must be afforded. This important research reminds all Americans of our societal responsibility and humanitarian call to provide all children with a productive and competitive education. This is a must-read for twenty-first-century educational reformists! —Angele Thibodeaux Burns, Ph.D., principal, Imagine Academy of Environmental Science and Mathematics and professor, Missouri Baptist University

The research provided seems to support the efforts of charter schools to establish a research-based curriculum which will use best practices to produce impressive results in the educational arena for all students involved.
