Stanford Study Shows Florida Charter School Students Demonstrate Lower Average Growth Than Public School Peers

Dec 4, 2009

According to a recent study of charter school performance in 16 states by Stanford University’s Center for Research on Education Outcomes, Florida is one of six states studied in which charter school students demonstrated lower average growth than their peers in traditional schools.

Of the 2,403 charter schools included in the Stanford study, 37 percent posted math gains that were significantly below what their students would have seen if they enrolled in local traditional public schools.
