School, Inc.  "Push Or Pull"  The late Andrew Coulson, education policy analyst, travels to Michigan's prestigious Cranbrook high school, one of the top ten private high schools in America, in Push or Pull, the second episode of School Inc. Cranbrook and other excellent private schools in America typically don't "scale up" to replicate their excellence on a larger stage and serve more students. So, is there some place else where scaling up excellence is happening? The answer is "yes" and it is in America's Charter schools, but when charter schools are seen to compete with public schools, there can be trouble ahead. From those involved we hear how the Sabis school, tremendously successful in Springfield, Massachusetts, was prevented from operating in nearby Brocton because a school superintendent decided such competition was simply not in the best interest of his public school district.
