The Evaluation of Charter School Impacts: NCEE Study Snapshot. NCEE 2010-4031
National Center for Education Evaluation and Regional Assistance
Charter middle schools popular enough to hold admissions lotteries are, on average, no more successful than nearby traditional public schools in boosting student achievement, behavior, and attendance. However, charter schools vary widely; some are more effective and some are less effective than nearby traditional public schools. Those located in large urban areas and those serving disadvantaged students are the most successful. Overall, parents and students who win entry into a charter are more likely to be satisfied with their school than those who do not win and must attend another school. (Contains 3 figures.) [IES develops these briefs to offer short, accessible summaries of complex technical evaluation reports.
