Success Academy was obviously not happy with this publicity: http://www.nytimes.com/…/success-academy-teacher-rips-up-st…? or this publicity http://www.nytimes.com/…/success-academy-founder-defends-sc… or this: http://www.nytimes.com/…/at-success-academy-charter-schools…. There has been a lot recently. But it is always framed as one teacher or one leader or one school simply not reflecting the network’s values. It’s not clear to me why this excuse is accepted. It is these the same people who rage that such things happening in “normal” schools is reflective of a general culture in the “normal” system or people wed to the status quo who don’t want to admit that what they do doesn’t work.
