"Secretary" Arne In The New York Times

“We are one of the few districts in the country that has shut down

underperforming schools and replaced the entire school staff. This

turnaround school strategy has taken some of our lowest-performing

schools and doubled or tripled test scores within a few years. Same

kids, different teachers, new leadership, a new educational approach,

and the results are dramatic.” (Testimony before House education committee, July 17, 2008.)
