Facing Low Enrollment, Achievement First Shuts A Crown Heights Elementary School

The Achievement First charter network is shuttering a Crown Heights elementary school, saying it is simply too under-enrolled to be sustainable.

Just a block away, the network runs another elementary school, Achievement First Crown Heights, which will remain open.
