Caroline Hoxby speaks tonight in the Gateway City about her charter lottery research. Q+A from the local paper, including why local charters perform poorly.
Speaking of which, if you’re a district leader, state official, or charter leader/authorizer wanting a hard-nosed examination of how your random admission lottery winners do versus your lottery losers (for charters or any other public school), the authors of this Boston study hope to do more such studies. Contact Sarah Cohodes.
