Governors and states should support university-based leadership-training programs and nontraditional organizations that focus on developing charter school leaders, a new report says.

States should also help secure funding for charter school leadership programs and let charter schools run their own training programs, says the issue brief, compiled by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices with the Center for School Change at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities.

The brief looks at the recruitment and training of charter school leaders and board members, as well as the issues they face in getting the skills needed to run charter schools.

The brief also says states should offer benefits to charter teachers, such as credit toward retirement, to help in attracting top candidates.
