Center for Research on Education Outcomes

The Center for Research on Education Outcomes, originally established at Rochester University in 1999 and now based at Stanford University, looks at education reform “with an emphasis on rigorous program and policy analysis as the means of informing and improving education decision making.” Their 2009 report that found that students at charter schools nationwide overall performed at the same level or worse than those in traditional public schools is one of the landmarks in the discussion of charter schools.
