ABSTRACT
The article discusses a controversy between researchers about performance of charter schools in comparison to regular public schools. The Stanford University Center for Research on Education Outcomes found that charter schools do not outperform regular public schools. Stanford economics professor Caroline M. Hoxby found that they do. Stanford professor Sean F. Reardon states that like many nonexperimental studies, neither study provides enough statistical detail for a reliable conclusion.
