The NAACP, released a major report on charter schools, calling for greatly enhancing the ability of local communities to approve or reject charter schools and getting for-profit providers out of the game; it presents a set of transparency and accountability recommendations which are the culmination of years of efforts to develop standards for charter schools—typically privately operated outfits that receive public money. During the past decade, the number of students in charter schools has nearly tripled, with approximately 3.1 million enrolled in 2016-17-- 1 in 8 black students in the U.S.now attends a charter school. The NAACP previously decried the lack of transparency and accountability for charter schools by passing three resolutions at its national conventions."
