80% of NYC Charters Enroll Fewer Free Lunch Eligible Students Than Neighborhood Public Schools

New York City Charter School Center:

Compared to the CSDs where they are located, however, only 32% of charter schools have an equal or higher percentage of FRPL-eligible students (20% for Free Lunch only). This suggests that, while charter schools serve low-income students in low-income neighborhoods, most have not attracted an economically representative sample of local families.
