Don’t mess with Success – A charter school teacher educates de Blasio.
A charter school teacher, Christian Lehr writes about New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s statement that the Success Academy Harlem Central would not have a home next year. Lehr’s 6th grade class had a 96% pass rate on the state math test given last year. This was the highest percentage in the state. Why would the Mayor make a statement like this about a school with success like this? The Success Academy has a lottery to see who can get in each year, due to its popularity with students and parents.
