The National Alliance of Public Charter Schools just released a report on charter school growth.
Assuming their data is correct, there are some major issues that need to be solved for across the country.
For example, according to their data, the state of New York only produced 12 new charter schools last year.
After all that protesting, getting legislation changed, marching across bridges – one of the largest states in the country only opens up 12 new schools?
When I worked in New Orleans, we were often opening 6 schools a year.
There are 45,000 students in NOLA.
In NYC alone there are over a million students.
How is NY only producing 12 schools a year?
More data below. I’ll keep blogging on this data set before, during, after Super Bowl.
