from the report:
“Of the 192 LAUSD magnet schools and centers, 37 are for gifted or highly gifted students. However when overall scores are disaggregated by gifted or highly gifted magnets, students at magnets still out-performed the charter and state of California average, when all grade levels are combined.”
“Economically disadvantaged students scored lower than non-economically disadvantaged students in charter and magnet schools, similar to LAUSD and statewide. In charter schools, economically disadvantaged students scored higher than LAUSD at all grade levels. At magnet schools, economically disadvantaged students scored higher than the LAUSD average and charter schools at every grade level.”
“Among ethnicity groups in charter schools and magnets, Asian and white students had the highest percentages meeting or exceeding standards compared to African-American and Latino students. African-American students in charters scored lower than LAUSD in grades 6, 7, and 8. For grade 6, 12% of African-American students met or exceeded standards at charter versus 15% at LAUSD. In grade 7, 12% met or exceeded standards at charters versus 14% in LAUSD. In grade 8, 9% in charters met or exceeded standards compared to 14% in LAUSD.
“All other ethnic groups in magnets scored higher than charter schools and overall LAUSD scores with the exception of grade 3 where 100% of Asian students in charters met or exceeded standards.”
“For students with disabilities, magnet schools and centers out-performed charters and the LAUSD average. An equal percentage of students met or exceeded standards in grades 6 and 11 among charters and LAUSD.”
