My daughter Nyaliz is eight. Last fall, she started third grade at a new school, Success Academy Williamsburg. Nyaliz had never been in a high-performing charter school before. She had never taken a standardized state test before. Even coming from a well-regarded magnet school, she was not at the same academic level as her new classmates, and catching up was hard work.
