Chicago's So-Called "Miracle" School

Former TFA teacher turned critic Gary Rubenstein takes a look at some of the so-called "miracle" schools that have been touted over the years around the country, including Chicago's own Urban Prep, and finds that things aren't -- weren't ever perhaps -- going so amazingly as has been told to us. I remain impressed by what the Urban Prep school community has done -- and dismayed at the way its impressive but not miraculous accomplishments have been presented and reported in the media.  What a shame.
