ODE has just released their partial school report card. It doesn't contain any final grades, but it does tell us whether schools made adequate yearly progress, and the news isn't pretty for Ohio's charter school movement.
Of the 352 charter schools listed, 58.2% of them failed to meet their adequate yearly progress (AYP) metrics.
If a student attends a school in any of Allen, Warren, Erie, Hancock, Lake, Madison, or Tuscarawas counties, not a single charter school made adequate yearly progress. Indeed, out of the 36 counties that have charter schools, 24 counties had schools that combined for more than half their charters failing to meet their adequate yearly progress.

There's a lot of students in a lot of schools, in a lot of counties not being served by the "choices" they are being presented with.
