Participants: A Measure of Efficiency Between Charter schools and Traditional Public Schools in Michigan Michael B Carrauthers, Wayne State University This paper will measure the efficiency between charter schools and traditional public schools in Michigan. A quantitative analysis of archived 4th grade reading and math scores from the MEAP Assessment will be utilized. Over 1700 elementary schools in Michigan will be examined. This paper will have policy implications concerning charter and traditional public school in the US and school finance. Charter School Innovation Versus Replication and Expansion: Complementary or Competing Goals? Elise Castillo, University of California Berkeley A primary aim of charter schools is to facilitate innovation in governance and practices. Since 2010, federal grants have supported the replication and expansion of charter schools, particularly charter management organizations (CMOs). As CMOs proliferate with federal policy and funding support, we know little about the implications for innovation. This descriptive study examines the extent to which federal CMO grantees experiment with innovative approaches. Neoliberalism Charter Schools: Panacea or Problems for Twenty-first Century Education Donna Michelle Druery, Texas A & M University The discussion of charter schools on public and private education is imperative. While I am not against charter schools, per se, I am against the for-profit style of management that allows private entities to earn millions of dollars while public schools are oftentimes left with those the private schools will not take, either based on admissions policies, testing or purported lottery enrollment chances. This loophole must be closed in order to truly educate all students. Facilitator: Lolita Tabron, University of Denver
