Title:Achievement and attainment in Chicago charter schools
Short Description:This report focuses on Chicago charter schools and addresses several key issues using student-level data provided by Chicago Public Schools (CPS).
Annotation:This report focuses on Chicago charter schools and addresses several key issues using student-level data provided by Chicago Public Schools (CPS). First, it provides evidence on whether charter schools are attracting high- or low-achieving students and assesses the effects of the transfers on racial mix in the city’s public schools. Second, it attempts to assess whether charter schools are producing achievement gains for the students who attend them, relative to district-run schools in CPS, as measured by state test scores. Third, it examines longer-term attainment outcomes, analyzing whether Chicago’s charter high schools are increasing their students’ likelihood of graduating, their scores on the ACT® college-admission exam, and their probability of enrolling in college (again relative to district-run CPS schools).
