At the end of this feature piece on a new science-centric high school, Vallas again proclaims his intention to turn all of the city's high schools into small schools (Curiosity powers new school). Of course, his definition of a small school may differ from, say, Mr. Klonsky's.
Still, why didn't Vallas make this a priority in Chicago? Too many high schools for it to work? Not enough support? There was no Gates money then, but there was Annenberg money. Or did he have to do it somewhere else -- far from the Small Schools Workshop and all of that -- so he could take the majority of credit for it?
