The state came out with its annual report on charter schools this week, based on the 2003-04 school year. (Can the state do anything on time?) Report here, Albany Times-Union here.
The gist: Charter schools in N.Y. state are doing better in general, but are draining money from the traditional public schools.
One more tidbit for follow-up: According to the report, less than 2 percent of charter school students in N.Y. are English language learners. That seems REALLY low, doesn't it?
Chris, any idea?
