In The News

Today's San Jose Mercury News carries an editorial celebrating the work our staff and students have done to move from the lowest middle school into the county to the highest in the district.

You can read it online if you're quick, but these links tend to disappear quickly. A slideshow is also available.

The lede paragraph demonstrates this editor gets it:
"Lee Mathson Middle School in East San Jose is proof that an ordinary public school can transform itself radically and rapidly. Its experience refutes the fatalistic notion that demographics... are destiny."

Oh my gosh you are famous. That's great.

Funny story that made me think of you: was at a charter school organization's board meeting yesterday and one woman said, in all seriousness, "I just moved my kid from private school to a charter school. we want to get parents like me looking at public schools again. That should be our message- reaching out to those parents who have given up and sent their kids to private school."

Um, what?
