Oprah Winfrey is looking at American Schools in Crisis yesterday and today. Her segment on solutions focuses on charter schools, including Kevin Johnson’s St. Hope schools, KIPP middle schools and San Diego’s High Tech High. Bill and Melinda Gates, who are putting multi-millions into small schools, also are on the show.
I’ve got a book event for Our School coming up at High Tech High on Thursday, April 20 at 5:30 pm. The school is located at 2861 Womble Rd., San Diego. In addition, the charter school’s biotech students will be selling their newly published field guide, Perspectives on San Diego Bay, which just won a national award for environmental excellence.
