Charter schools in Ohio are failing to serve disadvantaged and minority students as well as non-charter public schools do, a study suggests.

For More Info
More information about the Coalition for Public Education's annual review of charter school performance is available from the Ohio Federation of Teachers.

The annual study was conducted by the Coalition for Public Education, an Ohio-based organization comprised of the Ohio Parent-Teachers Association, the Ohio School Boards Association, the Ohio Education Association, and many other state and local groups.

The research showed that economically disadvantaged children met the state standard for proficiency in mathematics in 68 percent of traditional public schools, compared with 24 percent of charter schools. African-American students met the same standard in 40 percent of noncharter public schools but in just 20 percent of charter schools.
