School on the mend
from The Boston Globe
The wiry third-grader thrust his arm into the air, eager to ask a question of Blackstone Elementary School's new principal on the first day of classes yesterday. "What is metamorphosis?" asked the boy, who proudly called himself a budding scientist. The question could not have been more appropriate or timely, as the principal, Stephen Zrike, and his staff embark on a three-year effort to dramatically turn around this low-achieving school in Boston's South End and avert a state takeover. "Metamorphosis in my mind means change," Zrike answered during an unannounced visit to the class. "I'd say this school has gone through a metamorphosis this summer."
