Charter Schools Show Gains in Serving Children with Disabilities

As the number of charter schools  in the U.S. continues to increase, a new study from CREDO finds that they are offering benefits for students with disabilities.

The Center for Research on Education Outcomes (CREDO) at Stanford University compared the performance of students at charter schools with that of students attending traditional public schools in 25 states, the District of Columbia and in New York City. The report is an update to a similar report issued in 2009.

Study results show that charter schools  are improving, particularly when it comes serving  underserved groups like poor and minority students and those with disabilities.
