On average, public charter school students do better on EOG tests than traditional public school students. That’s the finding of an analysis reported earlier this week by the NC Alliance for Public Charter Schools.
After analyzing publicly available data from the NC Department of Public Instruction web site, the Alliance reported:
“the state average EOC performance for public charter students is 66.7%. This is ten percentage points higher than all-public state average of 56.6 %. With public charter schools separated out, the state average for traditional public schools drops slightly to 56.1 %. Additionally, when thinking of all public charter schools as a district and ranking it with the 115 traditional districts in the state, the ‘charter district’ average of 66.7% would rank the charter district 10th of 116 districts.
Maybe that’s why DPI wouldn’t provide an analysis directly comparing traditional public and charter schools on EOC performance and why charter schools continue to grow.
