Charter School Test Scores Also Up

Mayor Adrian M. Fenty and Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee publicized the DC Public Schools standardized test scores last week, but parents, students and teachers for the one-third of DC students who go to public charter schools got no information. The Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) published scores for DCPS but not the charters. OSSE said individual school scores wouldn't be released for another month.

The Post, however, pulled individual scores from parts of OSSE inchoate NCLB website http://www.nclb.osse.dc.gov/

Altogether, charter school scores went up. The increases were smaller than for DCPS, but the share of charter students passing the test (scores of proficient or advanced) remain higher than for DCPS. The exception is elementary school reading where both public schools and charter schools had 45 percent of students pass the test.
