Closing the Achievement Gap

A new national report from Education Cities showed that nearly half of Ohio schools making progress in closing the achievement gap between students from low-income families and their more affluent peers are charter schools. 

The March 23 Columbus Dispatch highlighted the study in an article “Rich-poor achievement gap diminishing at some central Ohio schools.” The story focused on ten Columbus-area schools, five of them charters, that are succeeding in efforts to raise achievement for low-income students.  

Noble Academy Columbus was one of the five.
