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
