Title:  Do Charter Middle Schools Improve Students' College Outcomes?
Description: A study from the National Center for Education Evaluation and Regional Assistance (NCEE) obtained college enrollment and completion data for students who more than a decade ago entered lotteries to be admitted to 31 charter middle schools across the United States. College outcomes were compared for 1,723 randomly selected "lottery winners" and 1,150 randomly selected "lottery losers". The study found that being admitted to a charter middle school did not affect college outcomes. Also, there was not a consistent relationship between a charter school's impact on middle school achievement and the school's impact on college outcomes.
