If disgraced shock jock Don Imus can make a comeback, why not somewhat disgraced school management company Edison? That’s exactly the plan, according to the SF Schools Blog, which has come across a “secret” document about the comeback plan: A whole new Edison Schools. After you’re done there, check out this May 2007 letter from Edision CEO Terry Stecz which was deleted from the Edison site but recovered thanks to Google Cache. Says Stecz: “We are on the cusp of releasing E2, our new school design, engineered to drive better outcomes, and, in so doing, we are preparing students for a track that can lead them to higher education -- a goal for every child enrolled in an Edison School.”
