Charter schools are offered as a solution in school districts where public schools are seen as failing. Although broad reviews of the outcomes of charter schools have tended to find that charter schools do not produce better academic results, this school management model remains a hot topic. However, two aspects of the charter school experience that receive less attention are teacher management and resource acquisition. We address these issues through the study of a charter school program in Bogotá, Colombia, which began in 1999. In this model, the city of Bogotá recruited private schools and other private organizations to manage 25 charter schools that were newly built and well-equipped in marginalized areas.
