Comparing Academic Achievement in Charter Schools and Public Schools: The Role of Money
De Luca, Barbara M.; Hinshaw, Steven
Journal of Educational Research & Policy Studies, v6 n1 p67-90 Spr 2006
Discriminant analysis was used to ascertain whether or not student achievement and expenditure per pupil allow one to distinguish between Ohio charter schools and their associate public schools. The sample consisted of 129 Ohio charter schools and 30 associate public schools. The difference in means between the two types of schools was significant for achievement at the elementary and middle levels but not for the expenditure per pupil. For high schools, the difference in means for both student achievement and expenditure per pupil was significant in distinguishing between the two types of schools. The discriminant function including student achievement and expenditure was significant for each model: elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools. (Contains 6 tables and 4 figures.)
