Reasons and Methods for California School Districts to Transfer Adult Education Services to Adult-Serving Charter Schools

without comments

I just finished the paper “Reasons and Methods for California School Districts to Transfer Adult Education Services to Adult-Serving Charter Schools” which details why and how a California Adult School should develop an adult-serving charter school.  I would truly appreciate feedback and peer-review of this document, so I can improve it.   You can find the currently published working paper at http://papers.ssrn.com/abstract=2219703

Here is the abstract of the paper:

With Governor Brown’s current proposal to transfer all funding for California adult-education services from school districts to the Community College System, School Districts and their Adult Schools should strongly consider opening an Adult-Serving Charter School instead, which can allow many current programs to retain state apportionment funding and potentially continue to bring revenue to the school district.  Adult-serving charter schools do require following different laws and regulations than Adult Schools follow, but with adaptation, most programs can still stay in place, and most students can be served.  Further, by adding a postsecondary “sister school” to the adult-serving charter school, adult students who can’t be served by the charter school can be helped.
