Research for Action is diving into a comprehensive study of Philly's small school's initiative, which has been gaining momentum in the past few years. (Is Vallas now a small schools guy? He says he is.) The District now claims 27 high schools and 13 charters with fewer than 500 students -- that's out of 62 District high schools and 21 charter high schools. To get started, RFA punched up its website a bit, adding a serachable map of the small schools. It's still a work-in-progress, but it's a neat feature: Going Small.
