Pro-charter spin by WSJ; very Steve Brill-esk, unfairly comparing the test scores at Girls Prep to PS 188.
Why not compare them to the autistic kids, while you're at it?Klein Loses On a Charter
About Girls Prep "The girls are mainly black, Hispanic and poor. Some live in homeless shelters; many live in public housing near the school. "
Really. How many homeless kids at Girls Prep? As of the latest available data, 5 out of 218, or 2%
How many homeless kids at PS 188? 46 about of 406 --11%.
How many LEP at Girls prep? 2% How many at 188? 17%
How many free lunch at Girls Prep? 50% how many at PS 188: 97%!!!!
When are these reporters going to check their facts!
But the test scores at Girls prep are better; so perhaps those PS 188 and autistic kids deserve to be on the streets.
