This morning,I posted about a bogus claim (“study”) released by the Florida Department of Education, asserting that the state’s 518 charter schools “outperform” public schools. This was intended presumably to support former Governor Jeb Bush’s claims about a “Florida miracle.”

Except that no study conducted by independent researchers has reached the same conclusion.

Many of the state’s charters operate for profit. Their owners make generous contributions to political campaigns.

Here is a comment by a reader, offering the list of Florida’s failed charter schools. These are schools that were closed because of poor performance.

The reader writes:

“From a local fighting the good fight… The first is a list of the 226 charter schools that have failed in Florida. I believe in that regard they are beating public schools 226-0
