More good news from research on the effects of US Charter Schools.
A couple of key points make it clear that the only reason unions and the political Left are against these here is that it wasn’t their idea (or they don’t give a rats backside about kids).
Low-income minority adolescents enrolled in California’s high-performing public charter high schools are less likely to engage in risky health behaviors, according to a new study by the University of California – Los Angeles.
Researchers said that these adolescents also scored better on Math and English tests as compared to their peers from other schools.
The researchers conclude that public charter high schools in low-income neighborhoods can cause beneficial health effects and bridge the growing academic achievement gap between wealthy and poor students.
The finding is published in the journal Paediatrics.
