Most D.C. charters fail to meet academic standards

From the CEC Smart Brief:

Mirroring the recent performance of traditional schools, only 4 out of 34 charter schools in Washington met academic targets on the D.C. Comprehensive Assessment this year. Charter board President Thomas A. Nida said the "less than stellar" outcomes were no surprise, because schools had faced new learning standards, a different test and more rigorous testing criteria all in the same year.
