Statement From Jed Wallace, CEO and President of the California Charter Schools Association (CCSA), on the Civil Rights Project Report "Choice Without Equity"
"The Civil Rights Project report on charter school diversity is out of step with the reality of today's schools and students' needs. It's unfortunate and unconscionable for the Civil Rights Project to release a study based on assumptions and incomplete data, and to solely focus their findings on demographics and "exposure" to diversity, rather than the academic performance of charter school students. This approach is overly simplistic and reflects the same thinking that has proven to be unsuccessful for the majority of children of color for decades.From: In the News. Published February 4, 2010.
