"Getting to Bartlett Street" is the inspiring story of Joe and
Carol Reich--heroes in the education reform movement--how they
built a school, changed the lives of many children, and helped
redefine the system in the process.
Joe and Carol Reich have spent the past three decades and a
personal fortune to help underprivileged children access the same
kind of high quality education that wealthier Americans enjoy. Yet
few people even know who they are. In "Getting to Bartlett Street,"
for the first time, Joe and Carol Reich tell the true story of how
they started one of the first charter schools in the country in
Since the Reiches began their work, the charter movement has
spread across the country like wildfire, offering children a way
out of failing schools managed by byzantine bureaucracies through
privately managed public schools accessible to all through a simple
lottery. But when they first conceived of their school, Beginning
With Children, no one had ever started an independent public school
anywhere in the country.
"Getting to Bartlett Street" is a tale that will astound and
inspire supporters of education reform everywhere.
Joe Reich and Carol Reich are the co-founders of the Beginning
with Children Foundation which opened the first charter-like school
in New York City in 1992. Joe Reich also founded Reich & Tang,
a leading investment firm in 1970. Carol Reich is the former
president of the Lexington Center (formerly the Lexington School
for the Deaf).
