(WEBINAR) Are Ohio Charter Schools Improving?
October 14 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am EDT
Since the first Ohio charter schools opened in 1998, they’ve regularly been subject to intense scrutiny. Detractors have criticized their academic performance, while advocates have pointed to bright spots within the sector. The competing narratives often give policymakers and the public mixed signals about the performance of these independently-run public schools that today educate just over 100,000 Ohio students.
At Fordham, we’ve long supported fair, even-handed evaluations of Ohio charters. A new report, which will be released in conjunction with this event, presents up-to-date evidence about the performance of the state’s charter schools. At this online event, study author Dr. Stéphane Lavertu of The Ohio State University will present his findings, which are based on a rigorous analysis of student-level data from 2015-16 through 2018-19.
Please join us for this important event. The event will consist of a 20 minute presentation from Dr. Lavertu and include 20-25 minutes for Q&A.
