Indiana's charters top most in study

Margaret Raymond, director of Stanford's Center for Research on Education Outcomes, said Indiana was one of just five states the center has studied in which charter school students showed better gains than students in the traditional schools they otherwise would have attended. Indiana's gains were tied with Louisiana's for the best among the states CREDO has studied. Only New York City had better results taking into account all the charter studies the center has completed. In all, the studies have involved 17 states plus New York City, Chicago and the District of Columbia. "The results in Indiana are amazingly positive in both reading and math," Raymond said. "These are really strong results."
