seen by some as a solution to chronically under performing public schools.
But Florida’s growing penchant for funneling public money into
charter schools hasn’t universally translated into better performance,
according to a national study released last week.
Florida students in traditional public schools, on average, read at a higher
level than those in charter schools and do just as well in math, according to
the study by the Center for Research on Education Outcomes at Stanford
University, released Tuesday.
ESE and ESOL students, fewer numbers on free and reduced lunch, the ability to
both counsel out poor performers and bad apples and to put requirements on
is Florida so heavily investing in charter schools again? The answer is a
simple one, follow the money.
