Charters Make Up Most of Bottom Spots on State Performance Index Rankings

report_cardAs we continue to dig into the state report cards, another fact jumps out:

The bottom 88 of 894 districts and charters when ranked by Performance Index scores are Charters. And this is with only 300 of the state’s 400+ charter schools included, because recent state law changes removed traditionally low-scoring dropout recovery schools from the rating system.

Of the bottom 200 districts evaluated, fully 179 are charters. Meanwhile, of the top 200 scores, just 10 were posted by charters.
