Study: Chicago charter schools lag traditional ones

By Juan Perez, Jr.,
Chicago Tribune


Charter schools have failed to improve Chicago's public school system and perform less ably than comparable traditional schools, according to a new report from an urban research group at the University of Minnesota Law School.

The Institute on Metropolitan Opportunity concludes in its report that, taking into consideration factors such as economic status, Chicago charters lag behind neighborhood schools in producing students who meet or exceed standards for reading and math, as well as in graduation rates.

The institute also says its research found that "charters are much less likely to be racially or ethnically diverse."

Researchers based their conclusions on data from 2012-13, after taking into consideration a variety of factors. Among other policy suggestions, the report calls for a three-year moratorium on charter school expansion and more research.

2. This would be big news if charters and "reform" were about education...

...but they're not. Charter schools and school "reform" are about moving tax dollars into private hands, so this news is sadly irrelevant to the powers that be.
