If Only I had the Choice of a School that Fails Kindergarteners

Beth Fertig:

Another parent, Angela Dupree, agreed and said she’s grateful for options like Harlem Link.

“I am very happy because it gives us the opportunity to shop around,” she said, noting that another daughter graduated Harlem Link last year and is now in junior high. “Like, I couldn’t believe some of the schools that she could possibly get into and she actually got accepted to the majority of junior high schools she wanted.”

But Dupree isn’t done shopping. She is thinking of moving her younger daughter out of Harlem Link, because she had to repeat kindergarten. She also thinks the uniform policy is too strict.
