Brockton High School has been hailed as one of the best high schools in the nation, celebrated for its excellent programs and high test scores. What makes its success especially impressive is that the school has 4,100 students and a large immigrant population.
Now enters the SABIS for-profit charter chain, seeking to compete with Brockton High School. In this report, EduShyster has a guest blogger explain.
Clearly, SABIS won’t be “saving poor kids from a failing public school,” because Brockton High is one one the best high schools in the state.
So why would the state allow the charter to open and lure students and resources away from a fine public school?
