  • PLS Title No Excuses charter schools associated with greater gains in math and literacy than traditional public schools
  • PLS Description The No Excuses charter school model focuses heavily on high academic expectations, rigid and consistent discipline, extended instructional time, intensive teacher training, and increased parental involvement. This review examines the effect of No Excuses charter schools on math and literacy achievement. On average, No Excuses charter schools are associated with greater student gains on standardized measures of math and literacy achievement when compared to traditional public schools—with higher gains for math.

  • Spanish PLS Las escuelas autónomas “Sin Excusas” se asocian a mayores avances en matemáticas y alfabetización que las escuelas públicas tradicionales
  • Spanish PLS Description Los estudiantes de origen socioeconómico bajo o de grupos tradicionalmente desfavorecidos suelen tener menor rendimiento que sus pares en exámenes estandarizados de matemáticas y alfabetización. Esta “brecha en el rendimiento” se asocia con valores negativos en los resultados de educación y carrera profesional, tanto a corto como a largo plazo. Las escuelas autónomas “Sin Excusas” están destinadas a reducir esta brecha, y aumentar los logros académicos de los grupos tradicionalmente desfavorecidos. Para efectos de esta revisión, las escuelas “Sin Excusas” son aquellas que destacan la importancia de expectativas académicas elevadas para todos los estudiantes, la aplicación de una disciplina rígida, jornada de clases extendida, capacitación docente intensiva y la participación de los padres. Esta revisión examina si estas escuelas se asocian a un mayor avance en los logros en matemáticas y alfabetización, en comparación con el avance de estudiantes similares matriculados en escuelas públicas tradicionales.

  • Spanish PLS El tratamiento de los delincuentes sexuales reduce la reincidencia, aunque se necesita más investigación para identificar cuáles intervenciones son efectivas
  • Spanish PLS Description En muchos países se han implementado programas de tratamiento de delincuentes sexuales para reducir la reincidencia, como parte de una estrategia de manejo de este grupo de delincuentes. No obstante, existe controversia con respecto a su efectividad. Esta revisión integra los hallazgos de seis estudios experimentales y 21 estudios cuasi experimentales, los cuales comparan grupos de delincuentes sexuales tratados, con grupos de control equivalentes. Estos estudios probaron si los delincuentes sexuales tratados diferían del grupo de control en la reincidencia de delitos sexuales y de otro tipo.
