Ep. 147 – June 22, 2020 – How Do Charter Schools Affect Traditional Public Schools?

Marcus WintersAn associate professor in Boston University and Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, Marcus Winters, joins Paul E. Peterson to discuss Winters’ new study, which presents test-score evidence about whether charter schools harm traditional public schools.

“We haven’t seen big negative effects really for anyone,” Winters says. “It puts the burden back on the side that would say that expanding charter schools harms public schools or harms kids in public schools.”

The study, “Do Charter Schools Harm Traditional Public Schools? Years of Test-Score Data Suggest They Don’t,” is available now.
