Re: “Phoenix TV Station Gets It Right About BASIS

As a student who recently graduated from BASIS, I think this article makes some good points. BASIS, especially going into the future, is going to be extremely selective in its student base. When you start teaching children mandarin in the 3rd grade for example, it's impossible to join the system later on in one's academic career because there is just too much catch up work to do. So unless you blossom academically in elementary school, you can forget ever attending BASIS. I can assure you I would have been completely unprepared to take the kind of academic load that BASIS offers in elementary school. By starting such an advanced education with such a limited scope at such a young age, BASIS will alienate any student's who might have been prepared to take on a more advanced load later in their academic career.
It's tragic, snobby, and inevitable.
