Report: Charter Schools produce higher percentages of college-ready graduates than traditional district schools.      

According to a report published January 29, 2014 by the California Charter Schools Association (CCSA), not only do Los Angeles public charter schools have higher graduation rates than traditional district schools, but students at public charter schools complete the college preparatory A-G curriculum at a rate nearly four times that of their traditional district school counterparts.

More interestingly, these findings hold true for student populations who have historically been left behind by the system – socioeconomically disadvantaged students, African-American and Latino students, and those who speak English as a second language.
