Closer look at Pa. charter schools
July 18, 2013
Important facts were omitted in Kate Wilcox’s article regarding the Center for Research on Education Outcomes’ charter school study (“Pa. charter students’ skills fall far short, study reveals,” July 8 and TribLIVE.com).
CREDO’s research included test results from only 61,770 of the 119,000 Pennsylvania charter school students, then extrapolated to all 119,000. The study does not tell us which schools were included or excluded or the basis for selection.
