Time to revise charter regulations

Interesting analysis from Pennsylvania, pointing out that a few decades in, states with charter schools are finding it's time to take another look at the regulations overseeing them:
"A lot of states have found that their laws are lacking. They're old, they're outdated, they haven't kept up with modern practices that we know work for charter school accountability and oversight," said Amanda Fenton, director of state and federal policy for NACSA. 
"The goal of the charter movement was never to create more bad schools. We seek to improve authorizer practices and improve state policy," she said.
Massachusetts is not mentioned in the article.
