Truth: Charter Schools Serve English Language Learners!

  • Print

October 9, 2015 Across California, English Learner "EL" students are performing better in charter schools than in traditional schools.

Charter schools statewide may serve a somewhat smaller percentage of EL students. But in urban areas, independent (autonomous) charter schools serve slightly more than, or about the same number of, EL students as traditional schools.

  • Charter schools in San Jose serve more ELs than traditional schools (51% vs. 28%).
  • In LAUSD, independent charter schools serve 1% more EL students than traditional schools.
  • Charter schools in Oakland and San Diego Unified School Districts serve about the same percentage of ELs as the local school district (within 3%).
