Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Why are some schools better? 'It's the culture, stupid'



From The Atlantic: Think of the ingredients that make for a good school. Small classes. Well-educated teachers. Plenty of funding. Combine, mix well, then bake. Turns out, your recipe would be horribly wrong, at least according to a new working paper out of Harvard. Its take away: Schools shouldn't focus on resources. They should focus on culture.
