CHARTER SCHOOL MYTH
Low-performing students are just as likely to leave a charter school as a traditional district school, according to Marcus Winters, the author of a new Manhattan Institute report exploring charter school attrition rates.
The charter school attrition myth: Low-performing students leave charter schools and traditional district schools at equal ratesHere is the question Winters (and Chalkbeat) don't seem to want to touch. If low-performing students leave charters and public schools at equal rates where do both these groups of students end up?
Public schools of course. So the sum total is a rise in public schools of low-performing students pushed out of charters.
I would like to see Chalkbeat stop tossing up every single piece of propaganda without pointing out such obvious facts.
