Too bad that the person beneath me is in fact telling a complete lie. Simon Gratz has made a drastic change, and althought it is unorthodox, its getting the initial job done of sending inner city BLACK AND MINORITIES to actual colleges after high school. I am an actual student and i can speak from experience.
