Emerging research suggests that most charter schools that fail are forced to close for non-academic reasons, most often because of organizational mismanagement and financial difficulties. The National Resource Center on Charter School Finance and Governance provides an array of information to help policy makers, charter school authorizers and operators build and support high-performing charter schools. The NRC Web site contains an information clearinghouse; promising practices related to finance and governance; state policy guides; and tools and resources to help the charter school community assess the financial strength and governance capacity of charter schools.
