Some really innovative stuff is going on in one NYC public school:
"There are many visible signs of growth at Anna Silver-PS 20M. Some of this growth is evident in our staff’s commitment to learning and disseminating best instructional practices and exemplary programs. As a faculty, we have participated in many workshops and programs to enhance our ability to deliver reading, writing and mathematics instruction. Our school is creating lavatory classrooms where teachers can observe and learn from experts in the field and each other. We are a community of learners – children, teachers, and parents."
