Abstract

This short essay reviews two recent academic studies of public school closures: The first study examines 198 charter and district schools closed in Ohio between 2006 and 2014, the second 47 district schools in 2013 and Ohio. Both studies suggest that the academic effects of closing failing schools likely will be positive, especially when the closures result in students transferring to higher-performing schools.

Keywords: school choice, parental choice, school closures, charter schools
