The Boston Foundation rolls out another MIT charter school study today”

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.
