'With the 'rapid growth of charter schools, it’s important for the public conversations about school choice to distinguish fact from rhetoric! Most peer reviewed research of national & local data on the segregation of students in charter schools over 10 years SHOWS that school choice is exacerbating existing patterns of segregation. A report by the NAACP’s Task Force on Quality Education found that one in 8 black students in the United States now attends a charter school. Charters are more segregated, underperforming, & lack appropriate transparency and accountability to the public. As a result, in 2016, the Movement for Black Lives, the NAACP and Journey For Justice all called for a charter moratorium. This is the truth i n response to an article in New York magazine which said that charters don't cause segregation, they help its victims.'
