Another report shows Renaissance 2010 scores lag

No miracles yet in Chicago

John Myers reports in Catalyst Notebook blog:

After keeping it under wraps for months, Renaissance Schools Fund has quietly released new research that paints a picture—one that is flattering in some respects, unflattering in others—of the first two batches of schools underwritten by the group as part of the Mayor’s new schools initiative.The report shows that test scores in the Renaissance schools slightly lagged those of students with similar backgrounds who attended neighborhood schools—though not to a statistically significant degree.
