EPI Seminars at CLOSUP: 'The Effects of New York City's Charter Schools on Student Achievement'

Nov 19, 2007, 4:00-5:30 pm EST
Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy
Abstract: We analyze all but a few of the 47 charter schools operating in New York City in 2005-06. The schools tend to locate in disadvantaged neighborhoods and serve students who are substantially poorer than the average public school student in New York City. The schools also attract black applicants to an unusual degree, not only relative to New York City but also relative to the traditional public schools from which they draw.

Sarah Cohodes: Can Successful Schools Replicate? Scaling Up Boston’s Charter School Sector

Jan 10, 2018, 8:30-10:00 am EST
Weill Hall, Room 3240
Sarah Cohodes will present work with Elizabeth Setren and Chris Walters titled "Can Successful Schools Replicate? Scaling Up Boston’s Charter School Sector."AbstractIn a climate of school turnarounds, charter school conversions, and new school openings, an important question is whether schools that boost student outcomes can reproduce their success at new campuses. We study a policy reform that allowed effective charter schools in Boston, Massachusetts to replicate their school models at new locations. Estimates based on randomized admission lotteries show that replicate charter schools generate large achievement gains on par with those produced by their parent campuses. The average effectiveness of Boston’s charter middle school sector increased after the reform despite a doubling of charter market share.
