We are from an ethnic back ground so the kids are mixed. they give us a hard time to enroll the kids. We have to get affidavits from City hall and are reminded repeatedly that we have to live in RBC area in order to enroll the kids there. As if i am already being accused of being deceptive. Believe me, i have never been made to feel as uncomfortable and unwanted as they made me feel. i really wish i lived in a different district just so i would not have to be treated so unprofessionally by the front office people at John Jones elementary in Rainbow city, al.

Boosting graduation rates, reducing gang involvement and violence, and providing positive male role models are just a few of the common elements of these programs. Yet, the achievement gap between black boys and other peer groups remains extremely wide.
