A better way to enroll kids in charter schools: Moving from individual applications to a common process would help students with disabilities
from New York Daily News
A new study from Massachusetts Institute of Technology research associate Elizabeth Setren shows that students learning English or with disabilities make more substantial academic gains when they attend charter schools instead of district counterparts. In fact, the charter-induced gains made by students with special needs are similar to the large gains achieved by general-education students. Yet in New York City and many other urban areas, charter schools enroll significantly smaller proportions of students in these disadvantaged groups than do surrounding district schools. Such enrollment gaps are troubling, but successful reform efforts are now taking on this issue in cities across the country.
