A Comparative Analysis of Lottery, Charter, and Traditional Based Elementary Schools within the Anchorage school district
AbstractThe growing popularity of alternative choices to traditional-based public schoolsâ€”such as public charter/lottery-based schoolsâ€”has prompted nationwide research. In Anchorage, however, there are few quantitative studies that compare student performance across traditional public schools, charter schools, and lottery-based schools. The purpose of this project is to create and analyze panel data for all public elementary schools within the Anchorage School District and compare the achievement of charter/lottery with traditional-based schools. This will be done using public Terra Nova and SBA data from ASD for the years 2007â€“2010 in addition to U.S. Census data. Data will be imported into Stata, a robust statistical software application, and regression techniques will be used to compare student Terra Nova and SBA scores while controlling for other factors that also influence test scores.
