Many freshmen, few seniors

Foundations, Inc., a private school management company, will take over Philadelphia’s Martin Luther King High School, which has been plagued by low achievement and violence. But it looks like they’re still expecting to lose two-thirds of students before graduation.

For starters, to foster better interaction among teachers and administrators and their students, the building will be divided into four houses. There will be two ninth-grade houses, each with about 350 students; a 10th-grade house, with 400 students; and a house for 11th- and 12th-graders, totaling 450 students.

Foundations also is managing schools that feed into MLK High. Eventually, that could make a difference. But it’s very hard to turn around a failing high school.
