Charter School Students Learn More
Maybe you've seen the billboards. Maybe you already knew. Charter school students learn more. Period.
How do we know? A huge national study just released by the Center for Research on Educational Outcomes (CREDO) at Stanford University told us. Simply put, the study found that students in urban charter schools gain more knowledge than students in urban traditional schools.
- 40 extra days of earning in math
- 28 extra days of learning in reading
The results are especially impressive in Los Angeles. CREDO found that L.A. charter students gain:
- 79 extra days of learning in math
- 50 extra days of learning in reading
By the time they graduate from high school, many charter students are literally years ahead. While this news isn't surprising to those inside the charter school movement, it's an exciting addition to the growing library of independent research confirming what parents and teachers already know - that charter schools are delivering on the promise of a great public education, especially in under-served communities.
