I think she can make it the three blocks to KIPP Star to see what it's all
about. After that she can go next door to PS 125 to compare their 5th grade and

Justice (remind me to never allow a public school to be named after anyone I
love, it's a travesty to think of social justice as a place where 7% of 8th
graders can read on grade level). In all of one hour door-to-door from her
office, she'll have seen more than enough to get the point.
