Report also suggests city should expand charter schools that are high-performing

From The Washington Post: A study commissioned by Washington, D.C., Mayor Vincent C. Gray recommends that the city overhaul or close more than three dozen traditional public schools in its poorest neighborhoods and expand the number of high-performing charter schools. More than 40 percent of the city’s 78,000 public students attend charter schools. At current rates of growth, a majority of the city’s public enrollment could be in charters within three to four years. Some advocates of traditional public schools have raised questions about possible bias in the study.
