Abstract

The Maya Angelou Public Charter School in Washington, D.C., is the kind of institution conservatives support—a place that offers opportunity but demands responsibility. Students are in school ten and a half hours a day, year-round, mostly studying core subjects such as reading, writing, math, and history. When not in class, they work in student-run businesses, where they earn money and learn job skills. Students who achieve academically are held in esteem not only by their teachers but by their peers. Those who violate the school rules are subject to punishment, including expulsion, as determined by a panel of students.
