Yes, I am still writing about the 2017-18 accountability results.
This year, N.C. Department of Public Instruction analysts did not include a chart that compared district and charter performance grades, so I threw one together. It shows that, compared to districts, charter schools had a higher percentage of A and B schools, a lower percentage of C and D schools, and a higher percentage of F schools.
I chose to exclude alternative, deaf and blind, lab, and regional schools from the groups.
*Note that these are preliminary calculations and thus are subject to change.*
|Charter Number||Charter Percent||District Number||District Percent|
|Deaf and Blind Schools||0||3|
