Mountain out of molehill. We are talking about 1.25% of DCPS enrollment.

This is one time when the raw numbers tell more than the percentages. In the 2011-2012 school year DCPS expelled four kids. In the same year the charters expelled 227. And the charters have about 3/5 the students.

The key point here is that the charters' "charter" is to use new approaches to get better outcomes with the same kids as DCPS. If they show performance gains by changing their student population, that's a system failure.
