Charter School Performance in New York City

A couple months ago I wrote a few posts with my friend Jarod Apperson using New York City public school data: 

Success Academy Posts:

We also wrote this follow-up, which provides some context for some of the other charter systems: Performance by Starting Grade

And we converted the Success Academy posts into a Sunday op-ed for the New York Daily News.
