Went to pick my step son up from school, like I do once a week but this time I had a problem. Backstory: my step sons grandmother works there as a teacher(moms mom). Anyway, I go inside to pick him up and his teacher asked me to go to the office to see if I was on the list, which in previous years I was on it and was able to pick him up not problem. I told his teacher this, and she said oh he must have "snuck by". Not something a parent wants to ever hear, especially when they are leaving. They play sides when it comes to families and I will NOT bring my children there ever!! Not a happy mom.

Urban Public Schools Come to the Rescue of Black Boys
Public schools across the nation are implementing programs that help keep young black men in school and off the streets. 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.
