Love it or hate it, charter school enrollment is on the rise
By Michelle Jones
The topic of charter schools is often controversial.
Consider this. The percent of students in the Indianapolis Public School Corporation enrolled in charter schools 5 years ago was 12.4%. In 2013 it increased to 20.8%. That’s a 67% increase!
But IPS’s increase in charter school enrollment is nominal compared to some other communities. Anderson Community School Corporation in Madison County, for example, increased by 472% between 2009 and 2013.
