“Low demand for charters among low-income: Researchers examine school selection, reforms and effects”
The Bay State Banner; December 10, 2015
Despite the fanfare, there is surprisingly low demand in Boston for charter schools among the populations that may benefit from them most, said one researcher at an education reform conference on Monday.
Presenters at “Leveraging Research and Policy to Improve K-12 Education in Massachusetts” examined factors behind school selection choice and shared reform lessons learned over the years.
The conference was held at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and organized by the FRB Boston and the MIT School Effectiveness and Inequality Initiative.
