You might be surprised to learn that Los Angeles isn’t one of the top five districts when it comes to the percentage of kids who attend charter schools. The top five according to a new report from the National Association of Public Charter Schools are New Orleans, Detroit, Washington D.C., Kansas City (Missouri), Flint, Gary, and St. Louis.
But LA is among the districts with the largest raw numbers of charter students enrolled. In fact, it’s number one. Read all about charter school growth (and the accompanying quality challenges) in this Huffington Post article. Or you can read the report here.
