Fix Schools don't close them - one Bronx school claims to have done it

This story is one of the best I've heard to counter the Obama/Duncan/Klein/EEP program that the problem is the teachers. PS 85 in the Bronx is an example of a school that has turned around without restructuring.

I heard this report on NYC early this morning. They put resources in the school, trained teachers and addressed the discipline issue (the principal didn't throw the DOE crap that there are only discipline problems because of bad lessons.
It should be heard in every hall of edcuational policy.
