A recent report from RAND examines the impact of charter schools on student achievements in eight states.
Findings from the study Charter Schools in Eight States: Effects on Achievement, Attainment, Integration, and Competition include:
- middle and high school grade charter schools show “achievement gains” similar to those in public schools
- charter high school attendees are more likely to graduate and continue their education by attending college
Read more about the findings and policy implications of this long-term study of charter school student achievement at the RAND website.

Nonprofit Resource Memo (NRM) began as an idea of how to combine my penchant for hunting down the latest study, news brief or blog with my experience supporting nonprofit human service programs as an evaluator and analyst.
NRM is an informational blog for the nonprofit community in western Pennsylvania. It will feature near-daily posts on topical news, research, policy initiatives and trends that impact the human and social services sector. Remember to bookmark us for your daily dose of nonprofit newsiness!
