Deion Sanders' football and basketball charter school: Failing grade

Eye-opening story of the day: The New York Times reports on the academic and management disaster that is Deion Sanders' Prime Prep Academy, a publicly financed charter school in Dallas, Texas.

The school appears to be far less about classes than about football and basketball. And intimidation. And celebrity power. And connections.

I don't care what the Waltons and their luggage carriers say: A failure of this dimension would not happen in a conventional public school in Arkansas.
