Answer: “Charter schools were more effective for lower income and lower achieving students and less effective for higher income and higher achieving students; they also had positive effects on students’ and parents’ levels of satisfaction with their schools.”

Note: The editors of RTE said that so much research was available they did not want to burden the paper edition of the journal with it, so they relegated their annotated reports on research to the Internet.
