As the charter school movement grows, some colleges and universities are creating offerings that incorporate the special needs of charter school leaders, while others are developing separate programs specifically and exclusively for public charter schools principals. With a new focus of school leadership beginning to unfold, we see a need to examine the special needs of charter school leaders and the potential effects of separate leadership programs for district and charter school leaders on public education. The question this paper addresses is:  How might professional schools of education move forward to meet the special needs of charter school leaders while maintaining a common mission for public education? We conclude with recommendations for practice and suggestions for further research. FULL MANSUCRIPT AVAILABLE IN PDF(attached below) AND/OR ONLINE AT:
