Location Decisions of Charter Schools: An Examination of Michigan
Koller, Kyle; Welsch, David M.
Education Economics, v25 n2 p158-182 2017
Using school level data we examine which factors influence charter school location decisions. We augment previous research by employing a panel dataset, recently developed geographic techniques to measure distances and define areas, and employing a hurdle model to deal with the excess zero problem. The main results of our research indicate that, after controlling for other factors, charters are more likely to locate in areas with higher median income, fewer students who receive a free or reduced lunch, lower reading scores, a larger percentage of black students, and more racial diversity.
