Finally... someone living up to the mission and purpose of the NAACP. NAACP leaders should challenge our society to strive to be better in areas of inequity.

blk people are truly counting on the school system to educate their children. then when they find that their child can barely read at the standard level, they still don't seem to "get" it.

i would NEVER rely on a public school to teach my child reading skills..

as a matter of fact, my child would not even be in these schools. i would home school mine.

economics, home ownership and being isolated to "urban" areas is a problem for most majority blk occupied cities and towns.
