Why are you posting a 3 year old fake story here ?
Anyone who thinks that these students did this on their on merit must be living on another Planet !!
This story was put together to try and deflect the real truth about the young black thungs in America.
What a frigging joke this is.
Hotlanta I guess you need to use a 3 year old story to create and image that you know is not true.

This story is so laughable !!

They are dedicated to filling their pockets with taxpayer CASH !!!

Its not a graduation when the educators move them along from grade to grade to avoid a backup.
So I guess you think every student in Inner City schools made the grades they got on thier on merit
instead of systamatically promoted to the next grade. When they graduate most cant read at a 10th grade level.
Hotlanta what liberal troff have you been wallowing in ?
Take off those rose colored glasses !!

Entire Chicago HS Graduating Class Going to College
" All 107 students in the first graduating class of Chicago high school Urban Prep are heading to college. Founded in 2006, the all-male, all-African-American charter school in Englewood that emphasizes a uniform of embroidered blazers and ties, set out to improve its students odds of getting in to college and getting ahead. "There were those who told me that you can't defy the data," Tim King, founder and CEO of school told Chicago Tribune. "Black boys are killed. Black boys drop out of high school. Black boys go to jail. Black boys don't go to college. Black boys don't graduate from college. They were wrong." To celebrate the achievements of the Class of 2010, Chicago's Mayor Richard Daley and the city schools chief Ron Huberman surprised the student body at their Friday morning assembly meeting, where school officials told the class that they would be rewarded with a free prom. When the senior class started high school, only four percent of them could read at grade level. Now they are all off to 72 schools--including Howard University, Rutgers University, University of Illinois and DePaul University--around the country. "I'm them," the school's director Kenneth Hutchinson--who hails from the inner-city Chicago neighborhood where Urban Prep is based--told the Tribune. "Being accepted to college is the first step to changing their lives and their communities." "
Determination/excellent teaching combined with goals and intelligence pays off. Glad to hear a story of success. It can be done, how do I know? I helped to black children and one is a Tech graduate and the other a Harvard Law graduate (not obama). They attended a religious prep school. The daddy and mama wouldn't allow them in a government school while doing K-12 prep work.

Hey bigot, you are certainly living up to the liberal standards.
You're convicting a person based on his beliefs.
Did you always do this?
You’re having delusions of competence.
The nut's got a fairly good engine, but his mind is not on the road and his hands are just not on the steering wheel. Bless his little heart.
