has a new report on small schools in which they state that, if done poorly, small schools can fail too. (I know. Shock.) Now, it’s an interesting piece on what does and doesn’t work in small schools, but why does InsideSchools have to link to it off their main page with a salacious headline about failing small schools?

Joe Luft also has some good quick summary points about the piece. Me, I’m hoping to write a longer reaction to it this weekend… but on some level, it’s sad to me that Beacon isn’t mentioned as a small school that works, but at 1,000 kids, I don’t think we qualify as a small school anymore. We still work, but we’re medium sized these days.
