Executive Summary

In recent years, much attention has been paid to the need to innovate and reform public schools. One response to this education reform movement was the creation of charter schools. This report looks at the charter school movement in New Hampshire and the current condition of charter schools in the state.

Our report compiles data about the unique characteristics and challenges of charter schools in New Hampshire. These challenges relate to New Hampshire's demographics and rural geography, educational metrics, funding sources available to charter schools in the state. Furthermore, the report examines available performance data and the success of charter schools in other states with characteristics similar to those of New Hampshire.
