We must come together and start educating our children about themselves and their rich history. Who else will do it for us, and by rights, why should they? We are excellent talkers and one of, if not the largest consumer. Why are we not buying books for our children, and why aren't we buying more books for ourselves? To move forward, we must educate our minds. Once we see the importance of education, we will, in turn, educate our children.

I attended HS during the time the sample data was taken. My HS was in one of the city's poorest neighborhoods and was nearly all black. And was a half mile or so from one of the nation's most prominent High Schools who to this day faces criticism for the lack of black enrollment and how they get around it. This school ironically being in a poor, mostly black neighborhood
