*Nontraditional K-12 Schools in Michigan* discusses private schools and homeschooling, the emphasis of the webinar will be on charter schools. Charter schools in Michigan are known as public school academies (PSAs). This webinar will review the history, structure, and experience of PSAs, with particular emphasis on student achievement. The special categories of Michigan PSAs will be defined and described. The emphasis of research on charter schools is particularly relevant, given the prominent role the federal government has assigned to charters in strategies for turning around failing public schools.
