Democrats don’t care what works

Vanguard High School in Colorado Sptings Colorado is a school with 22% below poverty level and 20% “minority”, with lots of military families (it’s near Fort Carson and Peterson AFB) and lots of parents in Afhanistan and Iraq.

In the annual CSAP tests, this high school has the highest scores in the state. And if you visit, you will be even more impressed by the serious attitudes, courteousness, discipline of the students and staff.

And if they had a hundred years to do nothing but visit schools, neither Barack Obama nor Arne Duncan would ever consider visiting it. Because Vanguard’s philosophy is diametrically opposed to “campus chic.”

“Because Vanguard’s philosophy is diametrically opposed to “campus chic.””

What, specifically, are you referring to?
