The Impacts of Charter Schools: Evidence from the U.S., and Lessons for MT virtual workshop

March 31 @ 4:00 pm - 5:40 pm

| Free

Montana State University’s Initiative for Regulation and Applied Economic Analysis division is hosting a free workshop about charter schools and their impact on the public education landscape.

Charter schools are publicly-funded schools that operate more independently of local school systems than traditional public schools. They run under charters with the state, school district, or other authorizing agency that govern their organization, management, and assessment. Charter schools generally have greater autonomy, but also greater accountability, compared to traditional public schools. Approximately 3 million students attend charter schools in the United States.

Please join us for this public virtual workshop that will bring together a small group of national experts on charter school policy and efficacy. The discussion will be geared toward understanding how charter schools affect students and local communities, with the ultimate goal of informing the charter school policy debate in Montana, where public charter schools are currently a much smaller component of the educational landscape than many other U.S. states.

Visit the division’s webpage for more information or to register to attend.
