There are expectations on the children AND the parents. Teachers work longer hours than normal.

If the student does not live up to expectations, the PARENTS are held responsible.

That just isn't the case in the majority of schools

Hmmm, seems simple. I keep hearing how its because our schools are in such bad shape or our teachers don't get paid enough or there are too many kids in a class. If we just spent a little more money. Harlem academy disproves those are the main drivers. I live in the shadows of the DC school system which spends more money per student than just about anywhere, fired a great reformer because she cared more about the kids than the union. Union spent $2 million to make her and the mayor go away. Crying shame. Good thing kids aren't the future.

As Dr. Phil would say "how's that working for you DC?"
