Stanford Finds Urban Charter Schools Get “Superior” Results

Charter schools are improving the quality of American education in major cities. That’s according to a huge national study just released by the Center for Research on Educational Outcomes (CREDO) at Stanford University. It found that many urban charter schools are providing “superior academic learning for their students, in many cases quite dramatically better.” The study also found positive results for nearly all student subgroups, especially for students who are minority and in poverty.

While this news isn’t surprising to charter school parents, it’s an exciting addition to the growing library of independent research confirming what parents already know – that charter schools are helping to deliver on the promise of a great public education.
