A Think Twice Review of:

Think Twice - Mar 20, 2012

Author(s) -

This report claims that the charter school-driven Recovery School District in New Orleans can be replicated in other urban centers.

Reviewer(s) - Kristen Buras, Georgia State University

Buras's review of this report finds that it ignores the fact that charters have not produced significant gains in student achievement and have been criticized by large segments of the African American community due to concerns over access, equity, performance and accountability.
