Good news on charter performance
From Marc Kenen of the Mass Charter School Association comes some good news.
The new MCAS growth model analysis shows that charter public schools are producing very strong academic gains for their students statewide (see the data at the Boston Globe online):
* In Grade 6, charters represented 9 of the top 10 growth districts in math and 6 of the top 10 districts in English;
* In Grade 8, charters represented 7 of the top 10 growth districts in math and 4 of the top 10 districts in English;
* In Grade 10, charters represented 5 of the top 10 growth districts in both math and English.
