Think Twice - May 11, 2006

Author(s) -

This report developed a unique typology to compare charter schools types by their enrollment, demographic background of students and performance.

Reviewer(s) - Gary Miron, Western Michigan University

Miron’s review finds major weaknesses in the study’s statistical findings. In addition, Miron points out that the study is limited in its ability to inform policy because it fails to compare charter schools to traditional public schools.
