A group that studies charter schools has changed a key report that had put San Diego Unified at No. 2 nationwide for charter school growth. The new numbers add an interesting wrinkle to trustees’ claim that the district is one of the charter-friendliest in the country.
School board trustee John Lee Evans called San Diego Unified “one of the most charter-friendly districts in the nation.” The numbers, to some extent, bear that out. But there’s plenty of disagreement over what that means.
