Changing children's lives one kid at a time!
by Charlie Leck

I had the extraordinary good pleasure of listening to Geoffrey Canada on Minnesota Public Radio today. He was talking about something I've written a lot about here on this blog; that is, the education gap among minority and lower income children in America's school. Cleveland's topic was "How to close the achievement gap in America's schools."

America will never achieve its full potential as a democratic society until it figures out how to handle this problem. Canada is committed to achieving it in one section of Harlem -- student by student and teacher by teacher.

This was an extraordinary presentation and I urge you to listen to it.

You will enjoy this fine gentleman as much as I did. When he tells you his "Green Eggs and Ham Story" it will touch your heart and you will wonder how we can get other children to have such life changing moments.

This is a gift I am giving you today. An extraordinary and wonderful gift. Don't lose it.
