In this 2010 report, the New York University authors analyzed enrollment patterns of student subpopulations in New York City charter schools over three years. They found significant variation among charter schools. On average from 2006-2008, as compared with districtwide averages, English language learners (ELLs) were underrepresented in charter schools, students who qualify for reduced price lunch were overrepresented, and similar percentages of students were eligible for free lunch.
