CREDO – a center for education research at Stanford – just released (another) study showing that students who enroll in Boston’s charters dramatically outperform their district peers in math and ELA gains.
Specifically, students in Boston’s charters – when compared to their peers in the district – achieved four times the growth in reading and six times the growth in math. This study points out that charters are serving roughly comparable numbers of low-income and special education students.
Overall, Boston has hands down the best charter sector in the country, says the study (again).
And here is Scot Lehigh’s spot-on Globe editorial this week on the CREDO study.
To Scot, “this study should open some minds — if, that is, they are not permanently locked shut.”
New study. Same as the old study.
