I'm reading some comments suggesting that charters are 'beating' DCPS systematically. There are good charters, and I think that is great, but the only way to determine whether charters are an improvement over public schools is to compare students from similar neighborhoods with similar demographics, where one group chose charter schools and others chose their neighborhood public schools, and to determine which group enjoyed better outcomes.

Ken Archer is making a different (valid) point: Those DC public schools that are enjoying the most success right now are the ones west of Rock Creek Park and some campuses on the Hill; the DCPS schools facing the most trouble are the ones in neighborhoods where the charter movement has taken hold more strongly.
