Ed Rodriguez: We Need To Prove Our Success

Voice: Leader

Region: San Diego Region

Organization: Vista Charter public Schools

"We have to prove ourselves every 5 years," says Ed Rodriguez, CEO of Vista Charter Public Schools. Ed explains that, unlike traditional public schools, charter public schools need to renew every five years:"proving to the district and the community that your systems, your programs, are successful, and you should be entitled to renew for another 5 years." It's this constant process of proving your school's worth that keeps charters accountable and successful.
