Bad News for Charter Schools, Worse News for Corporate Charters [2006]

This information on Ohio's charter schools is from Wednesday, August 23, 2006.

"With the federal study just released yesterday [August 22, 2006] showing charters worse or no better than regular public schools, and corporate charters fairing worse than other charters, one need look no further than Ohio to see these findings validated. From the Akron Beacon-Journal:

About 30 percent of Ohio charter school students attend schools in the state's lowest academic rating.
That's an improvement from last year -- when about 63 percent were in schools in the bottom rank.

Still, charter-school critics on Wednesday said the results are unacceptable."
