MYTH:

Posted on the Pennsylvania School Boards Association’s website:

“The foremost national study of charters conducted by the Center for Research on Educational Outcomes (CREDO) at Stanford University in April 2011 showed 100% of cyber charters performing significantly worse than their traditional public school counterparts in both reading and math.”

MYTH:

Cyber-Charter-School students are isolated from the real world, have limited opportunities to socialize, and are deprived of an important part of their educational experience.

Charter Schools Are Private Schools

MYTH:

Currently there is an ad that is airing on major channels in the Philadelphia area that states:

“We teach our kids to play fair with others.  But is it playing fair with our kids when public school budgets are slashed to pay for private charter schools and programs that help public school students make the most of their talents and abilities are eliminated?  Our kids deserve a fair chance to achieve their full potential.  That’s why public dollars should go to public schools.  It’s only fair – a message from the Council for the Advancement of Public Schools.”

This same ad can be viewed on U-Tube:
