• Student attendance and dropout rates: Charter schools have lower attendance rates and higher dropout rates than traditional public schools.
• TAKS and college readiness: Over the five years analyzed, a smaller percentage of charter students passed each of the TAKS tests and met the state’s standards for college readiness compared to their public school peers.
These facts and more are available at the Texas Education Agency website under the TEA’s 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 Snapshot reports.
As a society, we are the owners of your Texas public school system. Understanding how our tax dollars for public education are spent is a shared responsibility.
