How to Improve the Inner Cities - A Lesson Fom Harlem
The CBS 60 Minutes programme carried a film this week about inner city regeneration in Harlem, and how thousands of kids who live in poverty are being given the chance of a better life and a good education. Click HERE to read the New York Times story. You can also see the CBS NEws video on the same page. I was alerted to this by my friend Daniel Forrester who runs a Blog on change agents in government. He says: "A change agent to end all change agents in a story about challenging the norms of school and education. And doing so with 1 square mile of land in Harlem to prove the model. This could be any school in America. Watch the video and read the transcript it will give you hope - lots of hope."
