Response to Market Threats: How Michigan Public Schools React to a Growing Charter School Movement

a PSC Research Project [ARCHIVE DISPLAY]

Investigators:   Brian Jacob, Tamara Wilder Linkow

This project examines how charter schools in Michigan have impacted the structure and operations of traditional public schools (TPSs). Publicly available longitudinal school and district data as well as original survey data serve as the main data sources, measuring potential TPS responses to charter school competition such as capital improvements, expansion to full-day kindergarten, and increased attention to extracurricular clubs. To identify the effect of charter presence on TPS operations, we examine within-school changes over time in TPSs that have experienced substantial enrollment declines with analogous within-school changes in TPSs that have not experienced comparable declines in enrollment.

Funding Period: 06/01/2010 to 05/31/2011
