Boston — Auditor Suzanne M. Bump today released an analysis of the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s (DESE) updated charter school waitlist data. It follows an audit released by Bump’s office in December of 2014, which examined DESE’s oversight of charter schools and made recommendations about how to improve the accuracy of its data.

“When elected officials make decisions impacting the education of our children, they must do so based on complete, accurate, and reliable data,” Bump said of today’s report. “Our analysis found that, while some progress has been made, significant issues with data collection and rollover wait lists remain. If this discussion is to be based on facts, rather than philosophy, these issues must be further addressed."

The Charter School Waitlist Data Analysis is available here.
