Não está provado que seja mais barato e cada vez mais se percebe que o desempenho pouco se diferencia das restantes escolas quando a expansão implica a inclusão de mais alunos.

E é bom que se note que a Florida é um dos principais exemplos usados pelos que falam em reformas de sucesso associadas às charter schools.

Simplesmente… não é verdade!

No local charter school is top rated

Eleven Miami Valley charter schools improved their ratings on the 2011-12 state report cards, while 10 slipped and 16 others stayed the same, according to the preliminary data released by the Ohio Department of Education.

None of the 37 rated charter schools in the region received an “Excellent” rating, the equivalent of an A letter grade, or above. Six were rated “Academic Emergency,” the same as an F.

No area charter high school met the state’s requirement of at least a 90 percent graduation rate and only two charter schools in Ohio achieved that, according to a Dayton Daily News review of the data.
