A fact sheet created by the New York City Charter School Center that provides information on New York City charter schools for the 2011-12 school year. See demographics, achievement numbers, and much more.
The latest report from the New York City Charter Schools Evaluation Project compares the academic performance of charter school students with that of their peers who attempted to enroll in charter schools but were not selected in a random lottery. This method allows the researchers to isolate the effect of attending a charter school, without being concerned that factors related to the decision to apply to a charter school are really driving achievement differences.
