Lubavitch Principal Turns Around Bronx Public School

(Hat tip: Mom) In 2004, Shimon Waronker, former Captain in the US Army and now Lubavitch, became the principal of Jordan L. Mott school in the Bronx, to the shock of the failing Latino school.
Some parents at J.H.S. 22, also called Jordan L. Mott, were suspicious, viewing Mr. Waronker as too much an outsider. In fact, one parent, Angie Vazquez, 37, acknowledged that her upbringing had led her to wonder: “Wow, we’re going to have a Jewish person, what’s going to happen? Are the kids going to have to pay for lunch?”
The article is very interesting; the video is decent as well.
