An article on Tuesday's Opinion

Commentary page, "Give charters a chance," incorrectly stated the increase in one school's test scores. The article should have read:

"Since converting from a traditional public school to a charter, the Edison Charter Academy has (according to the school district's figures) raised dismal second-grade reading scores from the 21st national percentile to the 33rd national percentile; second-grade math scores from the 21st national percentile to the 57th national percentile; fifth-grade reading from the 24th national percentile to the 35th national percentile; and fifth-grade math from the 32nd national percentile to the 49th national percentile."

The Sun apologizes for the error.
