I encourage you to read the story from the Chicago Tribune about the first group of soon to be graduating seniors from the country’s first public charter school. Every one of them has been accepted into college! It is so very refreshing to read a story of inspiration and hope such as this from the mainstream media that typically focuses on the negative and reinforces stereotypes . . . especially of young urban African American men. Kudos to every one of these young men and all of those who helped make their dream a reality! Props to the Tribune for running the story and including the picture of the clearly overjoyed young men from the school.
