I love the entry about Shoemaker Middle School! It's highly interesting and provides great history about the school and the neighborhood. Thanks for the link!

While it is very nice for Science Leadership Academy students to have President Obama visit, he should also visit a neighborhood school versus just a highly selective magnet school. I assume the SDP or Nutter could make this happen. There has to be the political will.

the daily news article was a very interesting read especially since I and a lot of the people I know can relate to it.
