Closing poorly performing Ohio schools does not appear to harm displaced students, at least not academically, concludes new research released today by Glenn College professor Stephane Lavertu
and professor Deven Carlson of the University of Oklahoma. They found that three years after schools were closed, students who had attended a closed district school gained the equivalent of 49 additional days of learning in reading and 34 more in math. Charter-school students got 46 more days of learning in math, while gains in reading were insignificant. The study was commissioned by the Thomas B. Fordham Institute. Click here to learn more.
