Center for Education Reform Slams Report on Charter Schools

The Center for Education Reform, which has been involved with charter schools since 1993, reveals an agenda behind a series of Reuters articles.  

SELECTIVE? It’s irresponsible when facts are distorted, claims unsubstantiated, and balance not offered in the news. A series of articles by Stephanie Simon for Reuters News uncovering selectivity in enrollment at some charter schools was released on Friday. However, what’s not reported – and there’s a lot – is the fact that the reporter had an agenda and chose to be selective in her reporting. We share our colleague’s concerns and admonishment of schools that may be guilty of selectivity, but since CER’s research was so blatantly misreported, we took President’s Day weekend to do some fact-checking, because, after all, our first president taught us all not to tell a lie.
