A Think Twice Review of:
Public Charter Schools: A Great Value for Ohio’s Public Education System
Think Twice - Dec 10, 2008
Publisher/Think Tank - The Buckeye Institute for Public Policy Solutions
This report purports to show that charter schools in Ohio are unfairly underfunded relative to traditional public schools. It also claims that districts gain revenue for each student who attends a charter school and that there would be a net loss of revenues for districts if charter schools were closed.
Reviewer(s) - Gary Miron, Western Michigan University
Miron’s review of this report finds it to be misleading, and in some cases, false and deceitful. He concludes that “the report is so misleading that it’s tempting to see the distortions as intentional.”
