The National Alliance for Public Charter Schools released a new report today, Health of the Public Charter School Movement: A State by State Analysis. The report analyzes 26 states, including California, based upon 11 different measures to determine how well a state's charter schools are performing, innovating and growing. The report ranks California 8th.

The California charter schools movement is large and diverse and now serving over half a million public school students. This number is growing every year as students make significant gains in academic performance. Recent findings from the Stanford University's Center for Research on Education Outcomes (CREDO) confirms CCSA's research, that charter schools are performing incredibly well in California, especially with historically underserved students. Even better, they're improving over time. That performance has been driven by the growth of quality charter schools and the closure of underperforming schools.
