The Secret to Fixing Bad Schools. – D. Kirp

Kirp, David L.  “The Secret to Fixing Bad Schools.”  New York Times.  February 9, 2013.  Retrieved from:

The school district in Union City NJ, has fixed their schools without charter schools and Teach for America recruits.  They did it with preschool, all day kindergarten, and teaching about community pride and respect.

What makes Union City remarkable is, paradoxically, the absence of pizazz. It hasn’t followed the herd by closing “underperforming” schools or giving the boot to hordes of teachers. No Teach for America recruits toil in its classrooms, and there are no charter schools.
