Re: “Classroom Experiment

Re: the comment that changing a school does not happen overnight- the whole idea behind U Prep was that it would not be necessary to overcome existing problems. Roosevelt did not want to take on Westinghouse, Oliver or Peabody and in fact closed 2 of those 3 schools. He managed to get a new school in a new location with a new grade configuration, curriculum, student body and teachers but unfortunately ended up with results similar to the most troubled existing schools.

Many people pressed for details about the arrangement with the University of Pittsburgh but those details were never provided. And, in the Fall of 2008 many formal requests were made for an overall comprehensive plan of what high schools in Pittsburgh would look like 5 years out, but again, only vague responses were given. Most education and community leaders who are now quoted with concerns did not join in the efforts to obtain details about the partnership and the overall plan for high schools.
