admittedly i am suppose to be working on a one page abstract for my grad school class tomorrow and i am absolutely failing at accomplishing that task. so instead i checked blogs.
i haven't formed the sentences to begin to write about this, but i think everyone should read this about the kipp program. this is a very close account to what i've heard from teachers at the charter schools in dc (not kipp, but other schools).
if i start writing about it right now i'll never get my paper done. but you should read this. because while i wish i could love the idea of charter schools, this is exactly like the stories i've heard about what happens there. yet it is so rare to see anything in print that's not glowing about their practices.
