Excellent example! Just saw documentary in STL tonight and had a chance to visit with one of producers. Outstanding, thought provoking and right on target given our experiences on a micro and macro level. We can and must improve..We took our family despite MAP tests in AM.

Great story. Hopefully they will get the necessary infrastructure in the future to go along with the world class curriculum they are providing.


In my visits to schools in India and China, I found the education to be world class, but generally the facilities to be modest. These countries put their limited capital to content and teaching rather than to shiny buildings, fancy labs and awesome athletic facilities.

In the US, charter schools and small private schools seem to have also figured out - the facilities don't teach the students.
