As a member of D.C. COPE - the Committee on Public Education - he recommended reforms and tried to work with administrators and the unions to make them happen. But Eakin found the bureaucracy was interested in preserving the status quo, while test scores kept dropping, buildings kept deteriorating, and schools remained short on books, despite injections of money into the school system. So he redirected his energies to coming up with an alternative. "Our country desperately needs to try new ways to improve," he says.
In 1998, Eakin became chairman of the board of the District of Columbia Public Charter School Resource Center, and for five years he helped charter schools get started. Last September he helped found a new charter school himself: D.C. Prep, for fourth- through eighth-graders, next to a subsidized housing development in Northeast Washington. Now he hopes to open five to 10 more charter schools in Washington. "Educational results are enhanced by school autonomy," he says, "as opposed to having policies and other matters dictated from above."
Eakin is far from the only Princeton alum convinced that traditional models of public education are failing America's most at-risk students, and working to create models - both public and private - to replace them.
