During the 2014 Annual Conference for the American Educational Research Association (AERA), Dr. Mark Berends was interviewed on the research of school choice issues. Berends discusses the need to research beyond similarities and differences of traditional public schools and charter schools. He states "There is a need to look at the conditions under which schools are effective or not. This has implications for practice, whether at the policy level or what goes on inside schools."
