The Black Boys Debate

Interesting letters in the Times responding to the Schott report. The first letter from the teacher is the most substantive. Of course drugs, poverty and single parent households are huge players, but that doesn't mean schools can't make a huge difference with black boys. Or any boys, actually. You're a New Yorker; I suggest visiting the Excellence Charter School for Boys. This is a school I wish everyone could visit.
