Bill Gates Gets Schooled

Thanks to the blooger known as Ed Knows Policy for pointing me to this hard-hitting but fair BusinessWeek overview of the Gates Foundation efforts since 2000 (Bill Gates Gets Schooled), which includes some of the effort's biggest failures -- Manuel high school in Denver -- and its biggest successes -- Mott Haven in NYC and High Tech High in California.  Chicago gets a couple of mentions, and there are some remarkably candid quotes from folks involved with the Gates initiative about what they learned and what they have and haven't done.
