Charter Schools Post Higher Scores than Traditional Public Schools in Florida

Students in charter schools across Florida continue to achieve higher marks than their public school counterparts.

More than 3 million test scores were taken into account, then comparisons were made along three standards: proficiency, achievement gaps and learning gains.
