This inner city DC charter school boards its students
Try that with a regular public school.
The school takes in kids by lottery from inner city Washington, DC. Eighty percent of SEED’s students enter below grade level.
“Teachers put emphasis on the basics,” and it works. SEED graduates over 90 percent of its students and sends nearly every graduate on to college.
Just watch the excitement when kids win the lottery to enter this school.
Says one parent, “It’s called opportunity. We’ve never had that before.”
This school model isn’t for everyone, but it is saving kids lives in DC. Sadly, thanks to closed minded attitudes from adult-oriented education special interests in Kentucky, our kids still don’t have anything like the sort of opportunity that only a really flexible charter public school model can provide.
