Interesting to hear this from the parents side of the story. Here are some of the motivations as to why parents would send their kids to a strict charter school like Success. The parents whose kids were able to function in such a competitive environment were extremely pleased. Others whose kids weren't able to function well found that Eva Moskowitz runs the schools in an extremely rigid matter. From what I read I do think they need to make changes (not a fan of kids wetting themselves) but overall they seem to be great. Some of the parents were happy that their children got opportunities that they themselves did not get.

At some point in the future I would like to see the Times do features on alumnae of Success so we can find where they ended up and what role they think Charter played in them getting there.
