Assessing the Effects of Newark Charter Schools

Grant Year: 2018


Marcus Winters will examine whether the scaling up of charter schools in a single district can have a meaningful impact on the overall level of achievement of its students. Using data from both traditional public and charter schools in Newark, New Jersey, Winters will analyze whether students who applied and enrolled in charter schools scored higher on state assessments of reading and math than students who applied to the same schools but were not able to enroll. The project’s findings will appear in a report.
