What others have said about PCSB
“Over a number of years, the (Michael & Susan Dell) foundation has worked closely with the DC Public Charter School Board to support the creation and refinement of charter school performance standards. These standards, called the Performance Management Framework (PMF), are a national exemplar for establishing clear quality measures for schools, and for establishing both rewards and consequences based on performance.”
“A 2009 study from Stanford University’s Center for Research on Education Outcomes found that 37 percent of charter schools performed worse on student test measures than their traditional counterparts. Given that data, closure rates should clearly be higher. Those rates vary widely across the country. The District of Columbia Public Charter School Board is one of the agencies that sets clear standards and shuts schools that fail to meet them, according to the study. It oversees 98 charter schools and has closed 14 over the last three years.”
