It’s a logical choice to give universities the job of making sure these schools do everything they promise they will — and closing them if they don’t, according to National Association of Charter School Authorizers president Greg Richmond.  “I think universities can do a great job at sponsoring charter schools,” he said. “No. 1, they’re educational institutions, so they know something about education. And they have a lot of advantages to do the work well.”
