Washington Post: "D.C. graduation fraud? Not in the charter schools"
Emily Langhorne, a former high school English teacher and current policy analyst for the Reinventing America’s Schools project at The Progressive Policy Institute, recently analyzed our authorizing of DC Pubic Charter Schools in the Washington Post.
Other data confirm the very real outcomes D.C.’s charters are delivering. In 2017, for instance, 95.8 percent of charter graduates were accepted into four-year universities. And D.C. charter students have made some of the last decade’s largest gains on the National Assessment for Educational Progress, widely considered the best test for measuring student achievement. It’s no wonder that more than 11,000 children in the nation’s capital are on waitlists for public charters.
