Public Charter Schools: A Great Value for Ohio's Public Education System
This policy brief from the Buckeye Institute examines Ohio's public charter school finance and the impact of public charter schools on the finances of nearby traditional schools. The authors find that the state's public charter schools are creating a net gain per pupil for traditional public schools despite their disproportionate share of state revenues. Most districts' gains are substantially larger than their losses when a student chooses to attend a public charter school. The authors predict that the state's large urban school systems would face a significant decline in per pupil spending levels should the state's public charter school program end.
