Small Schools Ups & Downs

Lots on various small-school reform models this week -- from Seattle Weekly's tirade against the small schools movement (Bill Gates' Guinea Pigs) to EdWeek's piece on High Schools That Work Reform Model Found to Spur Gains in Kansas).

Gates-inspired small schools aren't the only model that's running into trouble:
After a 10-Year Run, Boston ‘Pilot’ Schools Sore Point for Union, and Turnaround Schools
(EdLeadership via EW).

Not to be left out, there's plenty on Renaissance 2010, Chicago's small-schools effort: Troubled charter school to turn over control (Sun-Times), New Schools: They Ain't Gonna Suck Themselves (Teach and Learn), CPS to open 18 new schools (ABC News), New Options for Closed Schools (News Herald).
