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.
