Charter schools excel at educating students in Connecticut.
In fact, according to our own State Department of Education, eighty-six percent of charter elementary schools are outperforming the district schools where they are located according to state data. The same can be said for 83 percent of charter high schools.
To cynics, those results can’t possibly come from great teachers or a high-quality school model. They think charters must be doing something wrong, and they say so.
One such accusation is that charter schools are cherry picking their students.
That’s nonsense, for more than a few reasons.
It’s clear: charter schools do not and cannot cherry-pick their students. Print this out and share it with your friends and family.
