"This is the third annual report from the National Charter School Research Project (NCSRP) at the University of Washington's Center on Reinventing Public Education. Like previous editions of Hopes, Fears, & Reality, this year's report explores some of the most challenging issues currently facing the charter school movement. The 2007 edition focuses on what is happening inside charter schools themselves: How are they organized and led? Who teaches in charter schools and how does their compensation differ from that of teachers in traditional public schools? Do charter schools seem to be meeting their original promises? Do charter school students experience anything different than students in traditional public schools?"
