Charter School Funding: Inequity Persists - Minnesota
Monday, May 17, 2010
In May 2010, a new study was released, entitled "Charter School Funding: Inequity Persists." Conducted by researchers at Ball State University in Indiana, the study examined charter school funding in 25 states, including Minnesota, and follows up on a study done in 2005 by the Thomas B. Fordham Institute.
Note: The study shows that the disparity in per pupil funding for students who attend a charter versus a traditional district in Minnesota actually grew in the years between the two studies.
The full report is available on Ball State University's website, but report findings regarding the state of Minnesota can be accessed below.
