Charters Outperform Regular Schools in New Data from the Big Apple

Don’t try to tell New Yorkers that charter schools don’t work.

The New York Post reports new data shows “A record 90.7 percent of students in the city’s charter schools aced this year’s state math tests — a rate nearly 9 percentage points higher than the city’s traditional public schools and more than 4 points higher than the statewide average.”

Furthermore, the Post reports that charters have closed the pervasive gap with “upstate” school systems and for the many minorities in New York City.

Meanwhile, Kentucky doesn’t even allow charters. What a shame for our kids!
