We wrote last fall:
Four Ohio school districts are among the top ten districts nationally with the highest proportions of students enrolled in charter schools, according to a new report from the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools.
Also true again this year:
- While Ohio charter schools have high market share in cities, no single Ohio district is in the top ten in terms of the actual, raw number of students enrolled in charter schools.
- And no single Ohio district is in the top ten in terms of the growth of charter school enrollment.
Here are the new numbers. They don’t include online charter schools. In Ohio, more than 30,000 students across the state are enrolled in online schools.
