E-PrepIn August, roughly than ten percent of the students are proficient in math and reading. By April, that's more like 70 percent. Welcome to Entrepreneurship Prep. As one student tells it, "At my old school you didn't have to do homework. I'd say my dog ate it, My pig ran over it. I didn't do homework." Not so at E-Prep in Cleveland's Glenville neighborhood. The school teaches the same children as the rest of the city schools but gets remarkably different results. As part of our coverage of 21st Century Schools, we'll find out how. Join us tomorrow morning for the Sound of Ideas. That's at 9 o'clock on 90.3.
