The performance of charter schools is an increasingly debated topic. In part, this is because of recent studies that conflict with each other over the objective performance of charter schools.

Performance gains made by charter schools on standardized tests relative to gains made by traditional public schools are examined. Also, a brief analysis looks at the extent to which charter schools have met their self- specified goals and objectives.
