Stanford Charter School

NY Times reports that a Stanford charter school has been denied an extension of its charter.

Yet despite the support of some of the nation’s finest educators, the benefits that a great university can provide and spending $3,000 per student above the state average, Stanford New School was not able to become the national model that the School of Education set out to create in 2001 when it opened its first charter institution.

These people train teachers and have a seat at the table to promote their ideas for school reform, but they cannot, apparently, turn their ideas into actual academic achievement for students.
