Clowning Around In D.C.

What happens when a public high school satisfies the requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act, sends 100% of its first two graduating classes on to college, is the nation's only public boarding school, and has a lengthy waiting list of kids wanting to get in?

it gets protested by some group styling itself as "Save Our Schools."

Update:(PM) Commenter Keely corrects the record by letting us know about The Indiana Academy (website here) which is, in fact, a publicly-funded boarding school attended by Keely. Keely states that there are several such schools, including the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy.(website over there.)
