Center for Education Reform on the US News & World Report Best High Schools List

Jeanne Allen, Center for Education Reform, said:

"The disproportionately high percentage of charters on this new list not only shows that charters work by bringing badly needed educational options to scores of American families, it should also bring comfort to policymakers across the nation who are considering improving or expanding their charter school laws."

Allen made these statements after noting 11% of the top 100 high schools are charter schools. This even though most charter schools in the nation serve elementary or middle school-aged students.
