In spring 2014, Raise Your Hand Texas (RYHT) engaged Moak, Casey & Associates (MCA) to analyze the financing, including current revenues and expenditures, of Texas open-enrollment charter schools, and compare funding information to that of Texas public school districts. The purpose of this study is to identify differences in funding between the charter schools and school districts. This report provides the results of that analysis as well as background information on enrollments, staffing and salaries, and funding for charter schools.
One of the highlights of the study found that if ISDs were funded like charters, total state support would increase by
over $4.7 billion.
The executive summary and the full report are attached with additional information.
