The Rude One rudely exposes the grift (not that anyone is listening):
By just about any measure, Hawthorne Avenue School in Newark, New Jersey, is a success, even something of a miracle. It scores in the top ten in Student Growth (which is business-laden rubric-speak for “learning”), #1 in the city, #7 in the state. It meets or beats the state targets on literacy and math competence. And it does extraordinary work educating poor and non-white elementary school students.
So, obviously, New Jersey school superintendent and Chris Christie appointee Cami Anderson is going to close it and open a charter school in its place.
