Crain's Cleveland Business;6/3/2013, Vol. 34 Issue 22, p0010
The author comments on the news story about the Breakthrough Schools in Ohio, founded by John Zitner, aired on CBS in 2013. He commends the story for looking at several of the schools and how they achieve the results that they do. He cites the failure of the news to mention that the Breakthrough Schools accept all students whose families agree to adhere to the basic requirements of the longer school day, longer school year, uniforms and codes of discipline.
