The article focuses on the Relay Graduate School of Education in New York where the success of student teachers is related to the success of their students. It relates that elementary school teachers under Relay's two-year masters-degree program are required to demonstrate that their own students averaged a full year's reading growth during the school year. Relay's cofounder and president, Norman Atkins, explains their approach to address the crisis in inner-city teaching.
