According to a new analysis done by Catalyst's Liz Duffrin, the kids who had to leave their original school to move to another one under Ren10 have not on the whole been hurt academically as has been claimed. But nor have they been transformed into academic superstars.
"Test score analyses show that thousands of students who were forced to
transfer out of closing schools are doing marginally better but are
still behind. Critics cite increased violence in high schools and
overall safety risks as proof that the district's strategy isnt
working." (Slow progress amid strife)
