CIS in Focus: HP Enterprise

My friend and former colleague Katisha Hayes over at the High Point Enterprise did a series today on the success factor of Communities in Schools (CIS). See the article here and two sidebars here and here.

An excerpt:

Test scores show that students in someof thecity’s most impoverished schools are struggling; clustering them at the bottom of academic indica­tors in math and reading.
But coordinators of a pro­gram aimed at keeping kids in school refuse to believe that these students – typically non­white, disadvantaged and lim­ited- English speaking – can’t do the academic work. For them, a little encouragement goes a long way, volunteers, staff and supporters of Communities In Schools of High Point believe.

I have a link to CIS on the links section on the right-hand side of the page. I encourage you to dial them up and see what they’re about, as they’re among the many that are about the business of trying to do some good in our schools.

E.C. 🙂
