ABSTRACT
The article reports on the results of a study which examined charter schools in 15 U.S. states and was conducted by Mathematica Policy Research of Princeton, New Jersey. The results, released in June of 2010, found that students who had won lotteries to attend charter middle schools did not perform any better on mathematic or reading tests than students who did not. The research did suggest that the schools were effective in improving scores of some lower income or low achieving students
