Think Twice - Mar 04, 2009
Publisher/Think Tank - The Buckeye Institute for Public Policy Solutions
This report offers up “dropout recovery” charter schools as a solution to reduce Ohio’s dropout rates.
Reviewer(s) - Sherman Dorn, University of South Florida
In his review of this report, Dorn finds that the data the report relies upon is grossly exaggerated when compared to Ohio state data regarding the number of students graduating from charter schools. In addition, Dorn points out that the report ignores a large body of useful charter school research. He recommends that policymakers seek out well-researched scholarship on this topic and not rely upon this report.
