Abstract/Description: This paper analyzes both public and charter school performance in Florida over the time period of 2001 to 2010. It uses scores from the Florida Comprehensive Achievement Test and recomposes those alphabetical values into numerical grade point averages, or G.P.A's. These G.P.A's will constitute as the chief indicator of school success. The purpose of this paper is to determine if charter schools in Florida, a component of school choice theory, have achieved their intended goal.
