The Young Women's Leadership School sits at the intersection of 106th Street and Park Avenue in East Harlem-and at the intersection of a school-reform debate in Washington. The school is a regular New York City public school for grades 7 to 12, except it's only for girls. The school's success with its low-income, largely Hispanic and African-American student body-all 32 graduating seniors went to college last year, many of them the first college students in family history-places anti-choice liberals in an uncomfortable position.
