Charters That Help Boys

This oddly written piece in the New York Times about successful/unsuccessful charters (It would be news if Uncommon Schools couldn't replicate its success. The fact that most charters do no better, or even worse, than comparable neighborhood schools is not news) is still worth a read, mostly because it conveys the teaching rhythm found in elite charters.

Williamsburg Collegiate is part of the Uncommon Schools network that includes Excellence Boys Charter School of Bedford Stuyvesant, which I profile in my book. These schools succeed with boys regardless of whether they are single sex or co-ed. Similar teaching approaches are found in the KIPP charter I profile in Why Boys Fail.
