Harlem/Brooklyn Success Academy Video Week Finale

Saturday, April 30, 2011

Boy, time is flying. End of April already.

I hope you've seen some of the videos I've been posting from the District 14/Success Network meeting on April 14. This is the finale. A good question is why when so many charters have impacted on Williamsburg, Success has raised so much opposition? I'm not sure but I may seek to find out some answers. Whatever the reasons, it has been fun to watch. As Success now attempts to add 2 more schools we will watch carefully to see if the resistance crumbles.

Today's video is the final one I processed. CEC 14 asks why Success didn't reach out to CEC 14 or why there are not math or reading scores listed for HSA (how are they claiming their schools are such a success?). She reads a letter from Leticia James representing Dist 13 and 14 calling for no more charters in either district. I wonder what other charter chain operators think of Eva who may be killing the golden goose for all of them.

  1. I wish someone would ask her about the enrollment of ELL at HSA I vs. the school in the neighborhood.

    Latest data released by New York State indicates that at HSA1 elementary school 0% of students are classified as Limited English Proficiency.[28] P.S. 208, a public school located two blocks away has 12% of its students classified as Limited English Proficiency. [29]

  2. I am a teacher at HSA 1 and 9 of 28 of my students are ELLs. I am not sure where this data was taken from but find it interesting.
