Failed African American (Black) Leadership



The Chicago State University drama reflects the failed leadership throughout the African American (Black) community.

Chicago State University is "on the ropes", about to be knocked out!  The African American (Black) community in the city of Chicago is "on the ropes" too.

There is no messiah coming to save the African American (Black) neighborhoods in Chicago.   We desperately need egoless leadership and the marshaling resources that will provide a high quality education for our elementary, high school, and college students.

Stop The Crime In Chicago By Doing This








Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants to stop the crime in Chicago?
He should do this!

We’re going to make sure all children are reading at proficiency by the 3rd grade. 

That would have huge ramifications, because kids who are reading at proficiency by third grade are much less likely to drop out of school, much more likely to go to college, and it’s a lot easier to teach a child to read in the third grade than the ninth or tenth grade.

The dirty little secret about education writ large, relative performance though out life tends to be remarkably static.
3rd grade reading level is a strong predictor of college completion. Relative performance though out life tends to be remarkably static.
