For many of my students, “my kids,” the was the only place where they could find the resources that they need to learn. The large, bureaucratic test-prep centers we call public schools do not meet their needs and private schools designed around workbook schooling meet no needs whatsoever. In Fort Myers, the Broach School was the only place where the mission of the teachers was to fit the classroom to the student, not the student to the classroom. And our kids learned, progressed and grew. But market forces dictate that our school, despite high marks for effectiveness, was a failure. Fortunately the teachers I work with do not validate themselves based on market forces, but rather the number of lives they’ve reached.
