Re: [nyceducationnews] "New" Charter study uses research based on ancient history in charterland
- The charter don't accept them in the first place so they don't need to push them out.I looked at data for Bronx charters. Almost every one had half as many ELLs and special Ed. As local public schools.

New Study: Data Say Charters Aren't 'Pushing Out' Students
"...examined data from an anonymous large urban district with a significant number of charters (60 by 2007). The researchers examined standardized testing and demographic data from the 2000-01 through the 2006-07 school years."
Presumably the researcher were studying NYC, if based on nothing more than the number of charters in place in 2007. Note, however, that the "data-set" STOPS in 2006/07, before KIPP, Success and Democracy Prep, the worst "push-out" offenders, were effectively up and running in the city.So, I suggest the article be retitled:
New Study: OLD Data Say Charters Weren't 'Pushing Out' Students... Before the Charter Chains Moved to TownResearchers-- come back and check again. Or save yourselves the trouble and read Gary Rubinstein's blogs on this subject.
