Abstract
Using publicly available data from the New Jersey Department of Education and U.S. Department of Education, CEEP conducted a study comparing enrollment, grade promotion and disciplinary rates, and student achievement between traditional public schools and charter schools. Primary research questions were as follows: To what extent do charter schools enroll “a cross section of the community’s school-age population, including racial and academic factors?” To what extent (if any) are there differences in disciplinary, expulsion, and promotion rates between New Jersey charter schools and demographically similar, traditional public schools. To what extent (if any) are there differences in student achievement between New Jersey charter schools and demographically similar, traditional public schools? Supported by data from the 2015/16 school year, CEEP’s visualization focuses on differences in charter school and traditional public school enrollment. The full report considers differences in disciplinary, expulsion, promotion rates, and achievement, as well as full details on methods. CEEP’s study was commissioned by the New Jersey Education Association.
