New York City is home to one of the nation’s most robust charter sectors, boasting nearly 150 schools and 50,000 students. The future role that charter schools should play in the Department of Education’s policies, however, is open to dispute. Charter school defenders point to long waiting lists and strong achievement as indicators of public support; their detractors focus on concerns about co-location, private investments, and skimming.

On July 15, we will explore the extensive research on charter schools conducted by the Center for Research on Education Outcomes and set out the key policy debates that surround this growing school sector.
