NEW YORK CITY CHARTER SCHOOL CENTER OPENS THE BOOK ON CHARTER SCHOOL DATA IN RELEASE OF FIRST “STATE OF THE SECTOR” REPORT
A new report on NYC charter schools:
An unprecedented amount of data about New York City's growing public charter school sector was released today in the first-ever State of the Sector report by the New York City Charter School Center. Charter Center researchers compiled information on 35 different data points, including parental demand, test scores, demographics, survey ratings, facilities access, attendance, and teacher and student retention, among other topics. The data show that charter schools serve largely disadvantaged students, and on average achieve greater academic results as well as higher rates of attendance and satisfaction, but enroll relatively fewer students in the highest-need categories.
In addition to this report, the public will also be able to access data on each of the city's 136 charter schools online, through a new set of "dashboards" on the Charter Center's web site. The dashboards offer a wealth of information about each charter school's student characteristics and outcomes, compared to those of district public school averages. The Charter Center worked with an advisory committee comprised of a dozen charter school leaders from around NYC to produce the report and the dashboards.
