Our high schools are getting too big? Maybe not...

Original post made by Me Too, Midtown, on Sep 27, 2010

Interesting NYT article on Brockton (MA) high - a turnaround and now a success story with 4100 students.

"At education conferences, Dr. Szachowicz — who became Brockton's principal in 2004 — still gets approached by small-school advocates who tell her they are skeptical that a 4,100-student school could offer a decent education. 'I tell them we're a big school that works,' said Dr. Szachowicz, whose booming voice makes her seem taller than 5-foot-6 as she walks the hallways, greeting students, walkie-talkie in hand."
