Achievement and Behavior in Charter Schools: Drawing a More Complete Picture - Students enrolled in charter schools behave better than those in other public schools, according to preliminary findings from this report. Examining disciplinary, performance and demographic data from a large district, the report finds that charter schools generate improvements in student behavior and attendance. The largest positive impact is seen in start-up charters rather than charter conversions. Students whose behavior improves when they enroll in charter schools, however, tend to lose those good habits if they return to non-charters. (Scott Imberman, National Center for the Study of Privatization in Education, October 2007)...
