I bought this book in the beginning phase of my charter school endeavor. It was clear, easy to follow, and incredibly thorough. It helps you to ask the right questions and address things in a procedure that makes sense.
I used the examples in the book to create the beginning of my own charter petition. When I eventually met and joined the California Charter School Association, they were amazed at how much groundwork I had accomplished on my own. I attribute that to this book. It showed me how to get started.
I highly recommend this book to anyone considering or starting a charter school. It gives a realistic picture of the extensive information needed to get up and running.

Buy the book. If there was ever a resource that takes you by the hand and walks you through the charter process, this is the one!! Once I read the reviews, I was hooked. The price? Not so much lol. I did my research and found it online for twenty bucks. Once I received the book and checked out the appendixes in the back, ladies and gentlemen I would easily forked over more. Its a great buy and I know I will be definitely be ahead of the game as I prepare to submit our petition! Thanks to Brenda Travis!!!
