CPS Charter Schools Performance Report Now Online

Announced earlier this week as part of the press release on the RAND study, the Chicago charter schools performance report is now out and online as a PDF. It's put out every years by the Office of New Schools and can be accessed through the following link. I haven't looked at it yet, but wanted everyone who's working in and thinking about charters to know it was there.

UPDATE: The folks at UNO didn't waste any time in sending out a press release highlighting how they did, on average (not sure if campus-specific info is available). Click below to see the text.
