 School in one of Chicago's worst neighborhoods gets ALL of its seniors into college
School in one of Chicago's worst neighborhoods gets ALL of its seniors into college
Four years ago, when the school was founded, only 4 percent of the class was reading at grade level. Today, every member of the senior class has traded their red uniform tie for the coveted red and gold striped tie that signifies that they have been accepted into college.

I hope the teachers at this school read this story. picked by tigertony 2 years ago

So it's apparently OK to wear sleazy school supplied uniforms at a game, but not in math class... picked by Moe 3 years ago
