NY Schools Chancellor Joel Klein happily takes credit for helping to bring about this change. Bronx Lab has been a successful start in reforming NY schools. Their chancellor laid out clear plans and targets leaving each school to achieve them on their own merit. ‘"The people that want to help us realise that we are so much better than what our environment tells us to be."’ Last year saw their first graduation, where more than half the average graduated. Klein insists that "‘we will never fix poverty in America until we fix education.’" SBS Australia – Ref. 4421 Journeyman Pictures is your independent source for the world's most powerful films, exploring the burning issues of today.
