"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 Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

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).
