FYI - these teachers now run their own small fully public high school just a mile or so from Sylmar High at the Cesar Chavez campus with most of the same students. It was the subject of a short film, will be a case study for an upcoming publication, and is constantly being visited by other schools as a model of what is right in education. Of course, most of the people who trash them will never go see it for themselves because its easier to assume than to get actual evidence.
