  1. Emily,
    Your experience sounds wonderful, but it seems to me that the things you speak about with regard to your school can happen in any school when the right resources and leaders are available to make it happen.  They are not limited to just a charter school.
    It seems to me that we need to look at places where schools are successful and put those ideas into place in public school.  It can happen, and it can be done.
