The world of charter schools is quite intriguing and as conversations about transforming the landscape of public education continue, scholars and policy advisors continue to weigh in on their value. This 54-page report from The Boston Foundation and NewSchools Venture Fund takes a look at the way charter schools prepare their students for college. Published in May 2013, this report was researched by the Foundation's colleagues at the School and Effectiveness and Inequality Initiative at MIT and notes that the charter schools in Massachusetts appear to have a long term positive effect on student outcomes and educational attainment. The report contains seven chapters detailing the group's findings, along with two appendices, a bibliography, and endnotes. It's a work that warrants close consideration and education scholars and journalists reporting on these issues will want to give it their close attention.
