Help us spread the word about these important findings. We have developed a simple toolkit with:
- In Los Angeles, the percentage of high school graduates who completed all college preparatory coursework is 4 times as high at charter public schools as it is at traditional district schools.
- Charter schools graduate high school students at higher rates than traditional district schools - 79% versus 66% for traditional schools.
- Charter schools are closing the achievement gap for high school students who have historically been left behind by the system. This includes low-income students, Latino and African-American students, and students who are English learners.
- Charter high schools that serve LA's most socioeconomically disadvantaged students achieve the same results as all charter schools. They continue to deliver a higher percentage of college-ready graduates than their traditional school counterparts.
