"5% of the American school population (K-12) is educated in charter schools." – Margaret E. Raymond, Ph.D.

The charter school movement began twenty years ago after Minnesota was the first state to pass a charter school law in 1991. Today, there are more than 6,000 charter schools across the United States providing education to more than 2 million students.

Since Ohio established its pilot charter school program in Toledo in 1997, the state's charter sector has seen rapid growth - today nearly 400 charters enroll Ohio students. At the local level, Cleveland's Plan for Transforming Schools counts charters as active partners in school improvement efforts.

The Center for Research on Education Outcomes (CREDO) at Stanford University is the nation's foremost independent analyst for charter school effectiveness. Join Margaret E. (Macke) Raymond, Ph.D., the Director of CREDO, as she reveals the results of a new longitudinal study on the performance of students in Ohio charter schools.
