Abstract
The purpose of this article is to inquire into the determinants of charter school policy adoption at the local level of the U.S. state, through a case study of Colorado school districts. This article established hypotheses by introducing seven explanatory variables influencing a dependent variable: charter school policy adoption of Colorado school districts. The seven explanatory variables are diffusion effect, race, poverty, residents’ education level, student population size, students’ educational performance, and alternative innovation. The target of analysis is 178 Colorado school districts and a logistic regression model is employed to test the hypotheses. The results of analysis showed that, of the seven explanatory variables, only the following three variables were statistically significant: residents’ education level, student population size, and alternative means of innovation. The influence of the variable “alternative innovation” was particularly strong. This article concludes with debate as to why some variables were significant, while others were not.
