Boston charter outscores public schools

Another success story for DI. Here is a Charter using it very effectively in Boston (not sure I got it right but that is where the newspaper is located). The school Director and Chairman insist the school is as diverse as surrounding public schools so the spectacular increases in scores are due to quality teaching and curriculum, not because of diversity issues.

Here's a quote on bi-lingual education that ought to anger a bunch of people in Oregon:

"It is a scientific fact that if you want to learn a language you have to do it before you are 8 or 9 years old," he said. "When a student comes to this school we teach them to speak English based on the phonetic methods right away. Bi-lingual education is a death trap. We want the students to learn English right away and remain on the same level with the other students, and it has worked."
