  • Some Charters are Mediocre or Failing

    While some charter schools are helping students learn and make progress, others are hindering students’ performance and progress. 

    In the 2013-14 school year — the most current year for which data are available — authorizers shut down 3.8% of all charter schools in their portfolios for academic failure, mismanagement, or other causes, according to the National Association of Charter School Authorizers.
