ALL THE LIES ABOUT CHARTERS ARE THERE TO CONFUSE YOU. Jersey Jazzman, is an expert on New Jersey charter data, and he wrote this devastating critique of Richard Whitmire's praise for Newark charters.
He writes: 'Bruce Baker and I looked at Newark's test scores -- both charters and NPS -- over the period of 'reform' in the city's schools. We found no evidence that Newark has seen any positive changes that couldn't be explained by overall, statewide trends (I'll have a similar analysis of graduation rates out soon).' Read the truth so you can expose the mendacity when people talk about charters as choice!
