Front page of the paper NY Times today:
Seeking to Clone Schools of Success for Poor

buried inside:
Today, KIPP-New York outperforms all other Bronx middle schools on
New York's standardized tests, and 98 percent of the students at
KIPP-Houston pass all sections of Texas' state exams. Eighth-grade
graduates have earned $5 million in scholarships to the nation's top
private high schools over the past two years, and continue to earn good
grades in their new schools.

"Nothing these guys do, nothing that they do, is beyond the reach of
every school in the country, period," said Samuel Casey Carter, who
highlighted KIPP in a report on successful schools for the conservative
Heritage Foundation, and is helping write a "users' guide" for the new
network schools. "This is not rocket science, this is very, very simple
stuff, but it's monitored and it's managed and it's continually improved."
