If there is any value in the state report card scheme, it is that it reveals the failure of the charter experiment.
71 charters or 23% received F grades compared to only seven tenths of one percent of school districts. Six charters or .3% received A grades compared to 5% of school districts. 87 charters or 28% received a D grade compared to 122 districts or 20%. 60 charters or 19% received C grades compared to 281 or 46% of school districts. 158 charters or 51% received D or F grades compared to 126 or 20% for school districts.
The $11 billion Ohio charter experiment, that was established to show districts the way to improve student outcomes, is a dud.
It is time for state officials to admit failure and cancel the experiment.
