AN UNBELIEVABLE STATISTIC! ECOT, which likes to brag about how many students they enroll, don’t like to talk about quality. In this post, blogger Stephen Dyer, points out that ECOT failed more students than all other Ohio school districts COMBINED.
No wonder ECOT (and Ohio) is the laughing stock of the charter school movement.
From Mr. Dyer’s 10th Period post:
While ECOT may account for 5% of Ohio’s high school graduates, it accounts for more students who don’t graduate than (drumroll please) all Ohio school districts combined! If ECOT were the 610th Ohio school district (under Ohio law, charters are treated as districts), it would account for more than 1/2 of all non-graduating seniors in this state.
There were 2,918 ECOT kids who didn’t graduate in four years, according to the latest state report card, and 1,852 who did. Statewide, school districts failed to graduate 2,626 and graduated 27,748.
This is just more evidence that ECOT is, in fact, America’s Dropout Factory.
