New Center on Charter Schools and Special Education Announced

The National Center for Special Education in Charter Schools (NCSECS) was recently inaugurated with a stated purpose of improving student access to charter schools, creating dynamic learning opportunities, and addressing those barriers that may impede charter schools from enrolling and educating students with disabilities. The Center, a nonprofit organization, will work proactively with states, charter school authorizers, and advocates for both charter schools and special education. The Center’s opening was announced at the National Association of Charter School Authorizers’ 2013 Leadership Conference in October.
