We Are Going To New York 

Elissa Gootman reports on New York City's public school system opening 99 themed small high schools aimed at providing an improved educational model over institutions packed with hundreds of students. What this reporter fails to mention is that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is behind this effort.

Meanwhile WEDJ received some fantastic news yesterday. At a New Year's Eve party Julie Doar-Sinkfield and I discussed our expansion plans. Our goal has always been to open new performing arts charter schools in other cities in coming years. She said that we should next go to New York, possibly looking at locating in Queens or the Bronx. So yesterday when I wished Fred Ezra a happy new year I asked him if he could work with us in acquiring a building in New York and he sounded as excited as a six year old on Christmas morning when he said "Yes!"
