Charter High Schools: Closing the Achievement Gap (PDF)

Charter High Schools: Closing the Achievement Gap

US Department of Education

More evidence on how charter schools are raising the bar about what’s possible in public education was released today by the U.S. Department of Education. Charter High Schools: Closing the Achievement Gap comes on the heels of the most important charter school story of the year in which The New York Times Magazine showcased middle-school charters for their success in closing the achievement gap among low-income and minority students. Both accounts illustrate that charter schools can, and do, work at scale.
