Solving the Charter School Funding Gap
The Center for Education Reform, 2005
This 2005 report examines several issues on charter school funding, and finds that on average, charter schools receive 21.25% less money than do traditional public schools. It also finds that seven origins of the funding gap include: unfair bargaining relationships, vague language in state charter school laws, impact aid given to districts, clauses allowing districts to withhold local funds upon student transfers, public debt markets, districts not being penalized for withholding funds from charter schools, and revenues for buildings that are not passed on to charters.
