School Sector and Climate: Evidence from New York

This descriptive study by Corey A. DeAngelis documents how often specific types of behavioral incidents occur in traditional public schools and charter schools in the state of New York. The author compares the number of behavioral incidents when controlling for student demographic differences. He finds that charter schools have fewer incidents (including assaults) than traditional public schools for around half of the incident types examined. However, charter schools have more incidents of cyberbullying than traditional public schools. The study notes that these differences may partially be driven by student selection into either type of school.
