More with More; Not That There's Anything Wrong with That

Dr. Bruce Baker provides some fascinating analysis of Achievement First's Amistad Academy:

So, in summary, what we have here is a high performing school that does not serve the same population, spends more than the local district and chooses to leverage spending toward class size reduction in the early grades and toward competitive early to mid-career teacher salaries. That’s a realistic look at a school that by many accounts is a darn good one.

This will of course be very useful for our conversation in Providence.
