A study from the Center for Reinventing Public Education (CRPE), an organization that often advocates for charter schools, attempted to provide an in-depth analysis of policy features across the states that allow for online charter schools. The report concluded that online charter schools should use a separate regulatory framework than brick-and-mortar charter schools. The report is part of a series of three, which were sponsored by the Walton Foundation.
Reviewer(s) - Gary Miron, Western Michigan University
An academic review of the report finds that it potentially offers a solid contribution for policymaking. In his review of the report, professor Gary Miron, Western Michigan University, describes it as a well-organized description of policy features, and that the policy recommendations generally, but not always, follow well from the study’s evidence.
