Creating a Bright Future for Local Students

Instead of going on vacation or hanging out by the pool, imagine spending the summer in one of the country’s best hospitals watching open heart surgery performed by skilled surgeons, or being surrounded by beautiful gardens conducting botanical research or working one-on-one with the people who make priceless works of art come alive for visitors. This may not be your typical summer, but for 65 bright.

Poetry Corner: Kimberly F. Brown

  Better to be Taken? Is this a fair question? Is it better to be taken? Removed from your environment? Taken from the place you call home? Distant from family and friends? Is it better to be taken? Better to keep you safe? Lost in a system without any plans or directions Placing you with strangers giving you corrections Removed from your environment To an unfamiliar place Making breaking promises on how to keep you safe Safe like a.

Are We Setting Up Our Kids to Fail?

I have two children in Cleveland schools and I worry that we're setting our kids up to fail. The new juvenile detention center in the Fairfax community bothers me. The school district's budget cuts bother me.  It’s a frustrating problem. Nonetheless, complaining neither adds nor subtracts any of the facts on this matter. I want to contribute to a solution. I decided to start going to school board.

Are You a High School Student? Attend College for Free Now!

I’ve been counting down the days until I graduate from high school since my first day as a freshman. I always felt that school did not give me enough of a challenge. I often was frustrated with the amount of busy work. It seemed as though institutionalized education was nothing but an excuse to force students into pointless work in order to keep them occupied.
