School Context and Charter School Achievement: A Framework for Understanding the Performance "Black Box"
Scott, Janelle; Villavicencio, Adriana
Peabody Journal of Education, v84 n2 p227-243 2009
This article explores the relationship between charter school racial composition, school environments, and student achievement. We offer an original framework for understanding school context and its influence on schooling outcomes. We conclude that policymakers could better attend to the persistent educational inequality that has shaped U.S. schooling if when designing school choice plans they took account of student racial composition even in a postdesegregation environment. (Contains 1 table and 2 footnotes.)
