Charter school students more likely to graduate high school

Jay P. Greene discusses a news study examining charter schools:

The researchers look at whether attending a charter high school in Chicago and Florida increases the likelihood that students would graduate high school and go on to college. The short answer is that it does. … This study comes on the heels of positive results from Caroline Hoxby’s random-assignment evaluation of charter schools in New York City.
