“The Boston Foundation rolls out another MIT charter school study today”
The Boston Business Journal; October 25, 2013
A new study, funded by The Boston Foundation and conducted by MIT researchers, shows that middle and charter school students in Boston are outperforming their peers in Boston public schools on the MCAS.
…The findings are contained in a report called Charter School Demand and Effectiveness, a Boston Update -- the third similar analysis of charter school effectiveness in Boston. The report was released at an event Thursday at the Boston Foundation. NewSchools Venture Fund, an Oakland, Calif., nonprofit that also supports charter school expansion, joined The Boston Foundation in funding the study.
