  1. The efforts of RMAPI are necessary but not sufficient. Rochester cannot prosper if it does not educate its children: we spend twice the national average per student and rank lowest of the 200 largest districts based on annual student progress (only 2.9 years for 5 years in school). Until we face the fact that we have a leadership / management problem that requires substantial change, this situation will not turn around. There are two options that can work in tandem: open more well-conceived charter schools to duplicate the great results shown by Rochester Prep and Vertus, among others, and/or find new leadership and new structure for the district that understands how successful organizations operate.
