CREDO, June 2009
The study compares students in California charter schools to their counterparts in traditional public schools. The analysis shows that the typical student in a California charter school learns significantly more than their counterparts in their feeder pool in reading and significantly less in mathematics. Additionally, new charter school students have an initial loss of learning in both reading and math compared to their counterparts in traditional public schools. In subsequent years, charter school students have a gain in reading from charter school attendance compared to their counterparts in traditional public schools and no significant impact in math.
