• Competition Breeds Success II

      This morning, I got an e-mail that provides another example of how private schools tend to beat the government-union monopoly.

      Dear John:

      The annual state test results were just announced, and we have exciting news to share!

      In eighth grade math, Harlem Village Academy was the highest performing school in the state of New York. With 100% proficiency for the third straight year, we outperformed the city (46%), state (55%), Harlem (36%), Scarsdale (80%) and Chappaqua (91%).

      In eighth grade English, we were the highest performing of all schools in Harlem.

      That came to me from Deborah Kenny, another entrepreneur who runs an outstanding school in Harlem.
