Poorly Performing Public Schools



Questions for Parents to ask the Principal of their children’s poorly performing public school.


I want to see (our school) succeed.

I believe the challenge for (our school) is changing the perception of the school by producing students with high grade point averages.

Is (our school) convincing students that (our school) is helping them achieve their career goals?

Is (our school) convincing parents to provide the support needed for their children to success in college?

Is (our school) raising the grade point averages of their students?

Black Africa and the U.S. Black Movement




This Document is Exhibit 10 of U.S. Supreme Court Case No.00-9587

NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL MEMORANDUM-46
MARCH 17, 1978
Presidential Review Memorandum NSCM/46
TO: The Secretary of State
The Secretary of Defense
The Director of Central Intelligence

SUBJECT: Black Africa and the U.S. Black Movement
The President has directed that a comprehensive review be made of current developments in Black Africa from the point of view of their possible impacts on the black movement in the United States. The review should consider:
1. Long-term tendencies of social and political developments and the degree to which they are consistent with or contradict the U.S. interests.

2. Proposals for durable contacts between radical African leaders and leftist leaders of the U.S. black community.

3. Appropriate steps to be taken inside and outside the country in order to inhibit any pressure by radical African leaders and organizations on the U.S. black community for the latter to exert influence on the policy of the Administration toward Africa.

The President has directed that the NSC Interdepartmental Group for Africa perform this review. The review should be forwarded to the NSC Political Analysis Committee by April 20.
