No media about the fact that there’s a All Male, African American High school on the southside of chicago who year after year has a 100% graduating senior class who ALL get accepted to 4 year universities/colleges.
they just want to talk about how whether a person’s death on the southside is gang related or not.
This is ridiculously impressive.
I am curious, however, of what percentage of these boys may have a disability or a learning disability…of course, not to detract from their obvious excellence, but I am a bit curious.
so am i actually. color lines comments that they wanna see exactly how many of freshmen make it to senior class and why that may be.
Most of their students arrive reading 2 years below grade level, are low income & come from single parent homes. Urban Prep works because they have small class sizes, fellows (recent grads who act as mentors, tutors, & advocates) and students are in “prides” that essentially mean they always have a support network of peers as well as instructors. The staff is highly educated & has a demonstrable investment in the success of these disadvantaged young men of color. It’s literally designed to close the gaps that these students have had to deal with throughout their education. I have some criticisms of the way it focuses so heavily on the success of boys of color while excluding girls of color, but the model is at base a good one.
