This report claims that charter schools in the “Big Eight” urban school districts in Ohio are producing greater student achievement gains, increasing revenues for traditional public schools, and operating at lower costs.
Reviewer(s) - Gene V Glass, Arizona State University
Glass’s review of the report reveals that its claims are without merit and should not be used to guide public policy. Among other things, the review reveals a lack of scholarly research to support the claim of increased student achievement in charters.
