Charters Win Again: New Broward Students Abandon Traditional Schools

By Buddy Nevins, BrowardBeat.com, for SouthFloridaReporter.com, Sept. 22, 2015 – Broward parents continue to send their children to charter schools in droves.

Charter school enrollment grew by 3,190 this school year, according to a memo from Superintendent Robert Runcie.

The traditional public schools grew only by 205 students.

Even worse is that Broward’s total enrollment since 2011 has increased from 258,803 to 268,836.  But the traditional schools’ enrollment has actually declined in those years, which encompasses Runcie’s reign — from 229,314 to 225,554.
