As K'Von Williams illustrates, DeLaSalle Education Center transforms young lives. Unfortunately, Missouri uses a one-size-fits-all accountability model to evaluate public schools. Because DeLaSalle serves only dropouts and at-risk students, it cannot so easily mask its students' performance like other alternative high schools across the state, which count their students' scores with the overall district. Missouri should reform its public school accountability system so that more students like K'Von get a second chance at receiving a quality education.
