New CS in Rochester

The Chalkboard posts about a new charter school opening in Rochester, a city that has not had the state's best track record in terms of charter school performance. The new school, True North, will face some unique challenges. From the Democrat and Chronicle article:
The 78-student school, at 630 Brooks Ave., is a college prep middle school
designed to teach character as well as the ABC's.
These middle schoolers are so far behind they don't even know the alphabet! No wonder these snapshot studies show charter schools falling behind other schools -- look what they have to work with!
