The concluding line in such tales of success always seems to be, I never would have imagined . . . That's not Wendy Kopp's story. "I imagined exactly this," says Kopp, seated in her 33d-floor office that overlooks Manhattan's Radio City Music Hall. With a senior thesis - a simple idea, really - this Princeton graduate helped rekindle an interest in education and public service. The concept was to grab recent college graduates, exchange the standard year or so of teacher certification for a few months of mental boot camp, and send them to teach at inner-city and rural public schools that have teacher shortages.

HARTFORD, Conn. - Four years of tuition at the University of New Haven's business school? About $120,000. A chance to get it free? Priceless.

Larry Flanagan calls it an opportunity to draw the kind of creative students that the University of New Haven wants and to help carve out the small private school's niche in higher education as an incubator for innovative business education.

With the state Core Curriculum Content Standards, pressure to produce academic results, and constant assessment of the education provided by our public schools, the need for teachers to remain current in teaching methods is increasingly important. For these reasons, the participation of 28 teachers in the Chamber of Commerce Southern New Jersey's South Jersey Summer Institute for Educators program is commendable.
