In a post about how Ohio is essentially targeting charter schools towards poor children, even though, technically, the criteria are ‘performance-based’, we come across this graph:
While the performance score is a somewhat odd way of calculating things*, the correlation is incredibly high, with an R2 of 0.83. As I’ve noted many times before, poorly performing schools are those with lots of poor students.
Might want to do something about that. Providing jobs would be a good start.
