Burke Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

The Edmund Burke School is a private college preparatory school in Washington, D.C. Located on Connecticut Avenue, NW, near the Van Ness metro station. It covers 6th through 12th grades, and it currently enrolls about 300 students. Founded in 1968 by Jean Mooskin and Dick Roth, the school practices progressive education: teachers are called by their first names and classes are small. In 2003, after years of contentious negotiations with neighbors, Burke gained city approval to expand its facilities with a new building which would increase both size and capacity. New computer labs, offices, classrooms, athletic facilities, a theater, and a large parking garage were built. The school was named for British parliamentarian and philosopher Edmund Burke, a founder of modern Conservatism. The quote, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing," of which attribution to Burke is disputed, hangs in the main hallway adorned with statues of the school's founders, Roth and Mooskin.

A user of NICHE under the name of SophomoreMar shared some thoughts about The Edmund Burke School: "This is a very small environment, one that judges people, and those judgments travel around this small community behind the person's back. Burke also claims to be progressive, which it isn't. It is far from progressive. When students are mentally sick, which happens frequently, and have to leave; they still give student's normal grade penalties and are not very flexible."
