Coming Soon: LWV Miami-Dade Charter Study

The Miami-Dade League of Women Voters has just completed a study of kindergarten readiness scores for public schools and charters located in the same neighborhoods. They discovered that 62% of the charters serve low-income children, but those charters enroll students with higher readiness scores for kindergarten than the public school nearby.  If charters get higher assessment scores, could it be that they are “cherry picking” students?

See the chart, you decide.
