Growth of Charter Schools Has Increased Inequality in Education

Exploring the negative consequences of
charter school expansion in U.S. cities

In a new EPI report (see PDF below), Rutgers University professor Bruce Baker finds that charter school expansion has exacerbated inequities in education. In his study of 11 city school systems, Baker finds, in most cases, the non-charter public schools have received fewer resources due to charter school expansion. Also, he finds that many leading charter operators have been charged with conflicts-of-interest and financial malfeasance.  

Baker recommends communities hold charter operators publicly accountable and consider the cost and benefits to the community and to the greater public good.


  1. Well, that's not really a good news. Frankly speaking, for me it's hard to understand all the negative affect of charter schools. The only thing I know is that every parent tries to choose the best education for his/her kids and everyone has a different budget. Many parents just can't afford to pay to pay for charter schools so they send their kids to the regular once. By the way, I don't think that the education received in a charter school guarantees you a job. Many people successfully find a job with the help of professional IT resumes writers online. The other problem is that that charter schools are often associated with fraud
    and budget gaps.

  2. Charter schools.. I don`t it is good or bad place for learning. One friend of mine teach her kids through internet courses and they quite smart already. I think if you have choice - you could find a way or at least alternative way. I could say i find myself lucky to go to the college. But i use writers help from time to time. :D
