What do you get when you combine a former kennel club facility, Florida, and a Fisher Fellow who was the assistant principal to legendary KIPP child abuser Chi Tschang? A new KIPP school, of course! The new principal of the school will be Robert Hawke, a 2009-2010 Fisher Fellow and the assistant to Mr. Tschang during his reign of terror in Fresno. The KIPP program - just like any larger corporation - can simply close up shop in one spot when things turn sour and transfer personnel (and resources) completely across the country to start afresh. Hawke even (digitally) signed his name on this document defending KIPP Fresno as the district tried to hasten the child abuser's exit. Well, Mr. Hawke, maybe you can reenact some of Chi's horror tricks at the former kennel. From the Jacksonville News:
"A child's learning is the function more of the characteristics of his classmates than those of the teacher." James Coleman, 1972
. . .a pupil attitude factor, which appears to have a stronger relationship to achievement than do all the “school” factors together, is the extent to which an individual feels that he has some control over his own destiny. James Coleman, 1966

KIPP and the Dog Kennel
Ken Libby has the story of a new KIPP store in Jacksonville. The question remains: will the new principal, who trained under child abuser, Chi Tschang, at Fresno, use the abandoned dog cages for the "miscreants?"
