When people hear “authorizer,” they might picture the institution, the process, the paperwork. But the day-to-day work is done by passionate professionals—people that bring their expertise, their wisdom, and their love of children to the decisions they make every day.
That’s why we think authorizers’ voices are so important. Here, we turn to some of the leaders in the field, and listen to their perspectives on their work and how it’s making a difference for children in charter schools, every day.
There are plenty of resources on our website on the WHAT of authorizing. But what about the WHY of authorizing? How do charter school authorizers choose this path among so many others in public education, and how do they sustain themselves?
Listen here to some of our nation’s leading charter school authorizers describe why they do this work, and why they believe it is making a difference. These leaders are just a few of the many who inspire and drive our One Million Lives campaign.
