'Charter schools are among the nation’s most segregated, an AP analysis finds an outcome at odds with their goal of offering a better alternative to public schools. Data shows that charters are vastly over-represented among schools where minorities study in the most extreme racial isolation. While 4% ofpublic schools are 99% minority, the figure is 17 % for charters. Schools that enroll 99 % minorities -both charters and public schools, on average have fewer students reaching state standards for proficiency in reading and math.C harter advocates respond that the segregation in charters is voluntary and therefore acceptable.
