A new study by Western Michigan University researchers is the second study I’ve written about this school year that has found the KIPP network of charter schools enrolls a smaller proportion of English-language learners and special education students than the school districts they draw from.

During the 2007-08 school year, the new study found that 11.5 percent of KIPP students were ELLs, compared with 19.2 percent of students in their local school districts. The numbers for special education students showed an even wider gap for that school year; 5.9 percent of KIPP students had disabilities, compared with 12.1 percent of students in the local school districts.

A recent special ed training I attended was held at a public school shared with a charter, which occupied most of the rooms.  We public school teachers were told that we should respect the charter school employees who denied us parking, bathroom access and use of the microwave.  Real friendly place.  Couldn’t wait to return to my good old public school, where all kids are accepted and we can warm our food.
