Successful charter schools and the Charter Management Organizations that run them have grown significantly over the past decade but the limited supply of effective teachers and leaders is a key barrier standing in the way of more rapid growth. Recent studies have indicated that many charter schools have an inadequate pipeline of school leaders and face a looming shortage on the horizon.

Join us for a conversation with charter school leaders to discuss their strategies for overcoming human capital challenges. We will launch the conversation with a paper by Christi Chadwick that analyzes the pipeline-building approaches undertaken by the following six Charter Management Organizations: Green Dot Public Schools; IDEA Public Schools; High Tech High; the Knowledge is Power Program, or KIPP; Rocketship Education; and YES Prep Public Schools. We will continue and expand on the discussion with a panel of distinguished charter schools and human capital experts.
