Joe and Carol Reich have spent the past three decades and a personal fortune to help underprivileged children access the same kind of high quality education that wealthier Americans enjoy. Here, for the first time, they tell the true story of how they started one of the first charter schools in the country in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. When they first conceived of their school, Beginning With Children, no one had ever started an independent public school anywhere in the country. But since the Reiches began their work, the charter movement has spread like wildfire, offering children a way out of failing schools managed by byzantine bureaucracies through privately managed public schools accessible to all through a simple lottery. --From publisher description.
