The Broad Prize for Public Charter Schools
The Broad Prize for Public Charter Schools honors the public charter management organization that has demonstrated the most outstanding overall student performance among the country’s largest urban charter management organizations in recent years while reducing achievement gaps for poor and minority students.
The Broad Prize for Public Charter Schools mirrors The Broad Prize for Urban Education that is awarded to traditional school districts and seeks to:
- Recognize those charter models that show the best academic outcomes, particularly for traditionally disadvantaged students
- Create an accessible repository of high-quality data on student achievement, policies and practices in the largest urban charter management organizations across the country
- Showcase the best practices of successful public charter management organizations so that other public charter schools and traditional public schools can learn from their success
