Hopes, Fears, and Reality: A Balanced Look at American Charter Schools in 2009
National Charter School Research Project, January 2010
This 2009 study looks at charter schools nationwide and finds that school turnarounds succeed only about 30 percent of the time. Additionally, states and localities can use charters as a tool for better schools, but they must be prepared to close charter schools when they fail to succeed. Lastly, most school districts that have lost and continue to lose students do not respond competitively. States could change that by increasing incentives for school districts to develop plans to compete with charters.
