    I plan to contact members of this panel to discuss how to begin to deliver academic achievement in math and reading that is a foundation for life long achievement and confidence, not just a credential or a status symbol.
    I listen to another view regularly-- largely to learn more about the community I joined in 2007 when I moved to Norfolk from Chicago. My main point of agreement with your guests is that education has failed black youth. Public education is also failing white youth, but often-white families have resources to compensate for the failure. Education that is more ‘indoctrination” than academic seems to repel more students and their families today—and more so boys than girls.
