The Equity Project

I came across this article in the New York times, and I was very intrigued. A charter school is being created in NYC as an experiment to see just what exactly makes for a great school? The founder of the school, Zeke M. Vanderhoek, thinks that it is the teachers who make all the difference. He will start with a painstakingly selected team of 8 top-notch professionals, including a music teacher, latin teacher and physical education teacher. These 8 teachers will each recieve $125K to start, with the principal himself taking $90K. Their class size will be 30, and they will shoulder many administrative responsibilties as a team. I am very excited to know how the first year goes!  ~Betsy
