School rating websites are increasingly used by parents to assess the quality and fit of U.S. K-12 schools for their children. These online reviews often contain detailed descriptions of a school's strengths and weaknesses, which both reflect and inform perceptions of a school. Existing work on these text reviews has focused on finding words or…

Virtual charter schools are increasingly popular, yet there is no research on the long-term outcomes of virtual charter students. We link statewide education records from Oregon with earnings information from IRS records housed at the U.S. Census Bureau to provide evidence on how virtual charter students fare as young adults. Virtual charter…

Using data from interviews and…

Bulkley, Katrina; Lu, Amanda; Meza Fernandez, Kate; Gerry, Alica – National Center for Research on Education Access and Choice, 2023
While charter schools offer families additional choices for their children's educational experiences, they are not exempt from the racial and economic disparities deeply embedded in the American education system. Community leaders and educators often point to policies regarding curriculum, access, and instruction as areas of opportunity to rectify…

It finds that the schools enter­ing that sys­tem (OneApp/?NCAP) led to increased access to those schools for Black and oth­er…
